Amazon in the US reports record holiday season sales

Online retailer Amazon has reported its best holiday sales season yet, despite a bleak trading period for many US retail chains. Analysts have pointed to Amazon as a rare bright spot in this year's holiday shopping season due to its scale and flexibility. Furthermore, online sales were helped by winter storms that hit large sections of the US on the last major shopping weekend before Christmas. In a press release titled "Amazon.com's 14th holiday season is best ever", the company said more than 6.3 million items were ordered on its site worldwide for the peak shopping day of 15 December, amounting to 72.9 items ordered per second. On its peak day, it shipped more than 5.6 million units. However, the company gave no financial details regarding the sales.
