Customers can readily try out Amazon’s devices over here before purchasing them. The marketing giant also plans to provide more information about their services and Prime memberships to customers.
This promotion is expected to take the marketing game to a whole new level, with Amazon already being a great presence in this industry, especially in the States. As per the most recent marketing and advertising news by The Mercury News, the company also plans to include devices such as Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Fire Tablets, and several other devices in these stores.
