Amazon U.S. rivals get sales boost on Prime Day -Adobe
(Reuters) - Several large U.S. retailers recorded higher sales on the first day of Amazon.com Inc's (AMZN.O) Prime Day shopping event as online shoppers also flocked to their websites, Adobe Analytics said on Tuesday. Large retailers, which have more than $1 billion (£803.21 million) in annual revenue, saw a 64% spike in sales versus an average Monday, compared with last year's 54%, according to the report. "Yes, all of these retailers are getting revenue out of it(Prime Day), but the big winner in this is still Amazon," said Guru Hariharan, chief executive of CommerceIQ, an e-commerce sales and advertising platform for consumer brands. Amazon said in a statement on Monday customers worldwide had purchased millions of Alexa-enabled smart devices since Prime Day's kickoff, and that other top selling items included the Instant Pot DUO Plus 60, LifeStraw Personal Water Filter, and Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitening Strips.
