Amazon is considering using vacant department stores in shopping centres as warehouses, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The company is reportedly in talks with the likes of Sears and J.C. Penney in the United States to convert their empty anchor spaces into distribution centres.

Retailers such as these have been closing as a result of the pandemic, following years of declining footfall.

Ian Guider, markets editor of the Business Post, joined us with this and the day's other business stories, including:

  • Bank of Ireland to refund customers impacted by 'smishing' scam
  • Small businesses can now apply for Restart Grant
  • Car sales slump in July according to official CSO data
