Back-to-school second busiest season for Amazon

HEBRON, KY (FOX19) - More and more families are doing their back-to-school shopping online.

Officials at the Amazon Fulfillment Center in Hebron, Kentucky say this time of year is especially busy as summer comes to an end and students head back to the classroom.

"Back-to-school season is really busy at Amazon. It is our second largest season of the year. A lot of people are shopping online for their back-to-school items because it's so much easier," said Amazon spokesperson Julie Law. "You can type in all the items on your list, find them really easily and get them delivered directly to your doorstep or dorm room, and you preserve the rest of your summer to spend with your family outside."

Because of the busy season, the Amazon Back-to-School store was created to make shopping more convenient for families, offering school supplies, uniforms and even dorm room essentials.
