Internet retailer Souq.com in Egypt has been relaunched to Amazon.eg, the eCommerce giant recently announced. “Souq.com is now Amazon.eg,” a statement said.
The relaunch was announced following the recent inauguration of Amazon’s fulfilment centre in the 10th Ramadan City. “A proud day for Souq.com and Amazon, a day we have been working toward since the two companies came together,” said Amazon Egypt country manager Omar Elsahy.
