If you love to buy from Amazon but hate to deal with returns, life will be much easier as of July: Amazon and Kohl have announced an extended partnership that will allow all Kohls stores to accept Amazon returns.
This isn It wasn't exactly a new program for the couple ̵1; it was originally 100 Kohls stores across the country that could accept the Amazon yield. But in July, it is being extended to all 1,150 Kohls locations in the United States.
This is a pretty brilliant move for both companies. I have friends who do not like to shop online, because if they order the wrong thing, they hate to handle freight returns. This solves the problem. But at the same time it is a great profit for Kohl, as it simply gets more people through the door. As pointed out by TechCrunch, Kohls has seen increased traffic – and more importantly, revenue – in the 100 stores that originally accepted Amazon returns. Come in to return something, stop leaving with some new kicks. Sneaky, sneaky.
Of course, this extended partnership will also be on the back of another new collaboration between the two companies that saw Kohls among others Amazon branded products (as Echo speakers) in 200 of their stores. Some Kohls stores also have an "Amazon Smart Home Experience" to show users which Echo devices can. It's another good idea.
With online sales constantly chipping away on the number of people willing to get in their car and going into a store, supporting partnerships with Amazon is an incredibly smart move for Kohls. It's a win-win win for Amazon, Kohl and customers. In fact, your wallet can be the only loser in this partnership.

Now let's talk about something a little more serious: shopping carts. They are a part of everyone's life (if you are not just shopping on Amazon speaking, did you know that Kohl's start is beginning to take back the Amazon soon?) And they are a little annoying. Imagine me, if you want, a world where shopping carts were … better. One where they could stop in an emergency. It is the world that Ford wants us to live in.
The company developed a safer shopping cart – one designed to save the count of countless users, shelves, or anything else it can come to. Using the same technology that Ford uses in his cars, the cart will be packed with sensors to detect obstacles and slow down when an imminent impact is detected.
Don't get too excited than, anyway – it's still a prototype for now, so you won't see it in the islands at your local Wal-Mart yet. Still, what time to live. ! [TechRadar]
