Since we’re not all quite comfortable in venturing to malls just yet it seems like most of our shopping is taken care of online. Yes, Amazon has been helping me burn a hole through my wallet these past few months but the upcoming annual Amazon Prime Days will probably be a record-setter. The two-day shopping event is known for offering great savings and deep discounts for Prime members on thousands of items. Mark your calendars!  Amazon officially has set the Prime Days, starting at  midnight PT / 3 a.m. ET on Tuesday, October 13 and will run through Wednesday, October 14.

Aside from all the big brand names we all know, Amazon Canada has created a new SUPPORT SMALL space on the site dedicated to bringing attention to small businesses.  The one-stop spot that makes it easy to shop from local businesses and profiles over 70 Canadian business owners selling on Amazon.ca from coast to coast.

Through this new storefront, customers can learn about 70 featured sellers from across the country, search for businesses by region (BC, Prairies, ON, QB and Atlantic Canada), and browse by section (women-owned, innovators and handmakers, and family-focused).
