The Backstory to Amazon’s Big Style Sale
Amazon’s Big Style Sale presents an excellent opportunity for bargain hunters to save money on Amazon purchases. But Amazon’s primary aim with the Big Style Sale was to execute a reset of sorts for Amazon’s beleaguered fashion sellers, who’ve suffered disproportionately amid delivery delays and warehouse snafus during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
While the pandemic has been a tremendous boon for online retail as a whole, much of the period’s retail demand has focused on basic necessities — which, in an era of forced telecommuting, doesn’t include fashion apparel or accessories of any kind. If it’s successful — and Amazon’s single-day sales track record is nothing if not impressive — the Big Style Sale could be just what Amazon’s fashion vendors need to get their businesses back on track in the second half of 2020.
This first-of-its-kind Big Style Sale sale is also a stand-in of sorts for Amazon Prime Day, which typically occurs in mid-July each year. Amazon hasn’t officially announced a date for Prime Day 2020, but it’s not likely to happen until early October at the earliest. Meanwhile, according to WSJ, Amazon is taking steps to normalize its operations in the wake of the pandemic, just in time for the Big Style Sale. That includes resuming unlimited shipments of nonessential goods to warehouses to reduce shipping delays and boost inventory.

Amazon’s decision to organize a multiday summer fashion sale on short notice is outstanding news for thousands of vendors hurt badly by the COVID-19 pandemic. And, since that it’s a massive sale on North America’s biggest e-commerce website, it also appears to be exciting news for bargain-hunting shoppers. Even if the recent large-scale shift to remote work proves to be one of the long-lasting changes wrought by the pandemic, there will always be a market for accessible fashion.
