·2 min read

Rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in Canada are apparently affecting consumers' ability to shop online as Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) is canceling its Prime Day sales event, the retailer told third-party sellers. Bloomberg reported that in an email, Amazon said, "Based on the increasing impact of COVID-19 in Canada, and the importance we place on protecting the health and safety of our employees and customers, we will pause plans for Prime Day 2021 in Canada." Prime Day will occur in the U.S. in June, a month earlier than usual, though the actual date has not been announced.
