Amazon is expanding its ‘Fresh’ operation

The Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown has brought long queues in supermarkets and high demand for delivery slots from the big players like Tesco  — which could mean plenty of customer demand in Belfast for Amazon Fresh.

The online retail giant has conquered many markets, from the online sale of books to TV and film production, as well as cloud services through its Amazon Web Services subsidiary.

Its subscription service Prime, which charges customers £79 per year for perks including free delivery and access to movies and TV shows through Prime Video, has lured millions of subscribers around the UK.
