With many independent bookstore owners facing the most dire financial crisis in their lifetimes, the American Booksellers Association has teamed with an award-winning advertising agency known for “culture hacking” to dramatize the threats of the pandemic and the growing dominance of Amazon.com. On Tuesday, the trade group launched the “Boxed Out” campaign, for which a handful of bookstores around the country will have windows boarded up and boxes piled up out front that resemble Amazon delivery containers.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Amazon says it will open two new delivery stations in the North Carolina cities of Raleigh and Garner.

The Raleigh News & Observer reported Wednesday that the stations will speed up delivery of packages in that area.

The online retail giant also said that the new stations will help create hundreds of new jobs this year.

Packages arrive at delivery stations from fulfillment centers.

The packages are picked up at the delivery stations by delivery vehicles and taken to customers.

Amazon has not released specifics on the exact number of new positions. The pay for the new positions starts at $15 per hour with benefits.
