Amazon USA is going after dollar stores

from https://ca.finance.yahoo.com/news/amazo ... 45145.html
Last week, the e-commerce giant rolled out a $10 & Under feature on its website and app, where customers can buy items at bargain prices. Shoppers will also get free shipping and they don’t even need a Prime membership.

“Amazon’s $10 & Under is designed to meet the needs of consumers looking for everyday low-cost items as well as small gift items,” said Brittain Ladd, a retail consultant, who sees it as an extension of Amazon’s retail ecosystem which duplicates the Dollar Store treasure hunt experience online.

Amazon’s $10 & Under is a way for the company to tap into shoppers who don’t want to become Prime members and low-income customers.

Doubtful. Amazon.ca made all the cheaper items ~$5 or less "add-on" items, which means you need to spend at least $25 to purchase them at all. Free shipping also requires a minimum $35 order in Canada.
¯\_(-.-)_/¯ A wise RFD'er once said, "Buy now, think later."

The add on items are disappearing on a daily basis. I use to by rinse aid for my dishwasher and it was an add on item. Now they’re gone from amazon’s site
