Amazon has rolled out its Amazon Pantry service in Spain.
As reported by granconsumo.tv, the company expects this service to become a significant rival for chains like Carrefour or Alcampo, as it will facilitate larger purchases for consumers that tend to use the hypermarket channel.
In commencing its Amazon Pantry service, Amazon has opened its fifth logistics centre in Spain. The centre is located in Castellbisbal (Barcelona) and is expected to create up to 200 jobs in the next three years. The 28,000 square metres facility will serve customers of Amazon Pantry in the South of Europe.
The service is available in over 7,500 cities and towns in Spain.
