Amazon says thank you to customers for naming it the UK’s favourite retailer at the 2019 Retail Week Awards

Amazon offers £5 off selected orders of £25 or  more placed today


London, UK: March 19thth 2019 – A nationwide online survey of retail consumers  has named Amazon the UK’s favourite retailer at the Retail Week Awards, where  they have won the Consumer Choice award for the third year running.


To say thank you to our customers, Amazon is offering £5 off selected  orders of £25 or more placed today. This can be redeemed by entering the  promo code BIGTHANKS at checkout.


For 24 years, the Retail Week Awards have been highly regarded by  the retail sector.  The Consumer Choice award celebrates the UK´s  favourite retailer, with the winner determined by retail consumers who have  participated in an online survey about their favourite retailer.


“We strive to provide the best  customer experience on the things we believe customers will always care about –  low prices, vast selection, and fast delivery – and we work hard to provide all  three, all the time,”  said Doug Gurr, Country Manager,  “We’re grateful for the  support of our customers and I’m confident our investments in the UK will help  us provide an even better shopping and entertainment experience in the years to  come.” 


“Many of the reasons that put Amazon on the top spot in 2019 were the  same that have made it a customer go-to since its launch,” said Chris  Brook-Carter, Managing Director, Retail Week.  “Shoppers cited the online  retailer’s breadth of products, price competitiveness and convenient delivery  options as the reason it was their top pick. However, a recent addition  that stood out for shoppers was the Prime membership scheme.  It is an  example of an innovation that has moved the goal posts of what a retailer  should offer.”


Amazon continues to further improve the shopping experience for  customers, offering over 250 million unique products available on  Prime members receive unlimited Fast Delivery on millions  of items across all categories and unlimited Same-Day Delivery on more than a  million items in selected areas. The ultra-fast delivery service Prime Now  reaches over 30% of the UK population.
