Amazon is a retail giant that continues to dominate its industry. Jeff Bezos founded Amazon as an online bookseller in 1994 in Seattle, Washington, and it (along with its marketplace of millions of sellers) has grown to encompass tech, fashion, home goods, groceries, electronic subscriptions and so much more. And don’t forget about Prime Day (not that anyone could). Amazon’s yearly sale acts as a mid-year counterpoint to Black Friday and offers its members exclusive deals. These days, Amazon exists as the shopping cart for literally everything you want. Want to order groceries that you need in literally hours? Amazon will do that. Want to buy a new tablet, a swimsuit, toys, furniture and cereal in bulk, all in one order? You can do that on Amazon. Amazon has also gotten into the streaming business and entertainment powerhouse, too, with Prime Video and Amazon Music unlimited. Oh, and thanks to Amazon’s Echo smarthome line, you can use its smart assistant, Alexa to control your lights, play music and order more stuff from Amazon, of course!
