Prime Time for Coalville Team's Celebrations

Prime Time for Coalville Team's Celebrations

A series of events, fun and games took place at the Amazon fulfilment centre in Coalville this week as employees celebrated Prime Day.

Some of the week-long activities at the fulfilment centre included giveaways, special Prime Day sweet treats and fancy-dress days. The events were organised by Amazon in Coalville to say thank you to the team for the work they do delivering for customers around the UK.

Prime Day is one of Amazon’s biggest annual sales events, and this year some of the bestselling categories on Prime Day in the UK included Hardware, Spirits, Skin Care and Devices.

One of the Coalville Amazon employees who enjoyed the Prime Day fun was Sophie Boyes. She said:
“We always have so much fun on Prime Day and this year’s celebrations have been our best yet. It’s great that we can all get together as a team and celebrate Prime Day.”
Amazon Coalville General Manager, Tracey Foster, added:
“Prime Day is a real highlight in the calendars of our customers and team members, and we’ve enjoyed lots of celebrations in Coalville. I’ve enjoyed seeing all the great things happening across our fulfilment centre this week and I’m looking forward to more fun events that will be taking place here over the coming weeks and months.”
