Jeff Bezos' Black Friday is near, reminds New York Post.
The annual Amazon Prime Day event is usually held in July, but has been pushed back to fall in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. According to a Wall Street Journal report, the online shopping giant postponed a sale in May to buy more time to supply a wider range of merchandise and create space for additional inventory.
The marketing event, which first took place in 2015, is now scheduled for October, the company said on Monday, September 28.
