There’s always something new and remarkable floating down the Amazon, along with a good amount of flotsam and jetsam, of course, so sometimes it seems difficult to keep up with Amazon’s delta. Over the last ten days alone, stories have emerged about product expansion, shipping changes, public relations flops relating to factory conditions…and their biggest retail event of the year.
When you are the biggest name in retail and retail is only one of your rackets, everyday is going to bring one kind of development or another. Recently, everything has been coming up Amazon except for one cheeky Brit who may signal problems down the road.
So, rather than sorting through all those Google alerts, allow us to fill your cart with a load of retail market research Amazon updates. Oh, and always buy through Smile (you’re welcome, SDLGBTQ Center!)

Amazon has long sold beauty products—in fact, your humble blogger recently migrated his Aveda Be Curly hair product purchases to Amazon, where he has long been purchasing face wash, lotion, and all the other male grooming essentials. No, they don’t come with the free gift that Nordstrom offers, but they are fast, reliable, and will come in the same shipment as my iPhone screen protectors (of which I go through about one per week).
