The biggest news of the day is Amazon India is enlisting local kirana shops to act as pickup points for goods ordered on the shopping portal. The pilot has been kicked off in Bangalore. A buyer can buy stuff from Amazon India and at the prescribed time pick up them up from a kirana store. The company will pay these stores some money for their service and in the future could ask them to open their own stores within the Amazon marketplace. Link
