Amazon Would Allow You to Shop at Your Local Mall from Home. Amazon’s next major store update would allow you digitally explore shopping malls and select new clothes and items that would be delivered to you that exact same day.
The new Pilot program would be arriving in 15 cities across the US which include Chicago, Washington, Seattle, and Las Vegas. If you are living in one of these places you should be able to access digital versions of your local Mall’s Pacsun, Diesel, Superdry, and GNC, select clothes and items just like you would do on the shelves.

Once your order has been placed, an Amazon Delivery driver would then go and pick it up and have it delivered to you that same day. Just like a takeout delivery service like GrubHub or DoorDash but for regular stores. Unfortunately, even though this is a benefit of prime, you don’t automatically get free delivery, you would have spent at least $25 on your order or cough up $2.99 to get your new goodies.
Just As Stated by an exclusive report from the Today Show, reported Blayne Alexander stated that new cities, malls, and stores would get added to the pilot over the coming months. Alexander stated that a few other stores would be joining the current lineup fairly soon. However, it is not yet clear which of the new stores would be coming in.
Shop From Home
Amazon has always been seen as the force that would bring about the end of brick-and-mortar establishments. All thanks to its broad online collection, and the convenience that shopping online and home delivery has brought, there are progressively fewer reasons for us to head out instead of shopping solely from the comfort of our smartphones and laptops.
As explained by Amazon as a part of the Today Show’s report, this pilot program would make it easier for people to shop at their favorite stores and then stay on top of the current fashion trends. Plus they would get their order as quick as them going to the mall and getting them item picked up for them, all without having to burn right through their very own high-priced gas and wasting any time heading over there.
Amazon Wants to Connect With Customers More
This would make it a lot easier for the stores to connect with customers, potentially helping them to win back patrons that had given up on in-person shopping.
Well, there are some minor downsides to the new system like you would not be able to try on clothes right before you purchase them, but if you know the store and the size you normally have to buy there, then you hopefully should not have to return the clothes too frequently.
At the moment, we would have to wait and see just how the pilot would turn out, but if it proves to be quite successful and new malls and physical stores decide to get right in on the action.
