Arno Lenior, Director of Prime for Amazon Australia, said, “We are thrilled to bring Prime Day back to Australia, giving Aussie Prime members access to huge savings on tens of thousands of products. We believe there is something for everyone with deals across a huge range of categories and savings to be had on bigger ticket items alongside household essentials. Last year marked the two biggest days for small Australian businesses on Amazon.com.au and to make sure they have a huge Prime Day this year we are once again putting them front and centre through our ‘Shop Local’ store during one of our busiest times of the year.”

Shop Local this Prime Day

For Prime Day this year we are putting small Australian businesses front and centre through the ‘Shop Local’ store, which features curated collections to connect customers with Australian businesses including Little Archer & Co. from Sunshine Coast, Queensland, that creates quality baby and toddler products, and BIGSOFTI from Newtown, Sydney that sell portable soft-lights to enhance photos and videos.

Andonis Sakatis, Founder of Zenify said, “Prime Day has been a record breaker for us every single year. It gives our small Aussie business immense reach to a huge number of new customers in every region of Australia and a chance to give them our best deals of the year with free and fast delivery.”
