This year’s Prime Day is shaping up to be a massive 65-hour sales event, with local shoppers enjoying access to global deals.

“The great thing about Prime Day in Australia is that Prime members here get access to all of the deals in the Amazon UK & US store and they go all the way through until 5pm on the 14th,” said Greta Hicks from Amazon Australia.

“It’s a blend of 38 ingredients, and we hand make, roast, grind all the spices ourselves, and mix them together, Priya told sunrise.

“We’ve actually been selling on Amazon for one year now, so this is our first Prime Day (and) we’re super excited about it!”

It’s the biggest warehouse in Australia, spread across 200,000 sqm — that’s around the land size of Taronga Zoo or 24 rugby league fields.

While automation is a key part of the facility, robots don’t do all the work.

All of the company’s facilities have helped create more than 1100 jobs.
