Amazon said on Tuesday that this year’s holiday shopping season was the largest in its history as the new coronavirus epidemic forced more people to shop online. Amazon said in a blog post today that consumers started buying gifts and seasonal goods for their loved ones early this year. It should be noted that while Amazon’s sales are soaring, many retailers relying on physical stores are struggling. Jeff Wilke, CEO of Amazon’s global consumer business, said: “on this different holiday (because of the epidemic), customers still want to buy some cost-effective gifts for their loved ones, or something extra for themselves.” < / P > < p > “we are very happy to help deliver a smile throughout the festival. We also thank our customers, employees and sales partners around the world for making this festival our biggest festival so far, and for all you have done to support our community and each other now and throughout the year.” < / P > < p > Amazon does not disclose its actual sales data on “Black Friday” or “online shopping Monday,” which are usually the busiest days of the company’s holiday shopping season. Truist securities, a Wall Street investment bank, expects Amazon to grab 42 cents of every dollar of consumer spending this holiday season, up from 36 cents last year. According to Adobe analytics, U.S. shoppers spent $9 billion online on Black Friday, lower than their expected $10.3 billion. Sales of online shopping Monday will reach $10.8 billion to $12.7 billion, up 15% to 35% year-on-year. Skip to content
