Amazon Echo drops to $79.99 in latest sale

The departments will be created to demonstrate how Amazon-powered smart home products can modernize and simplify home management, entertainment, security and more with Echo devices, Fire TVs and Fire tablets.

The 1,000-square-foot area will provide an interactive, hands-on way to buy Amazon devices, including the Echo, Echo Dot, Fire TV, Fire Tablets, and more gadgets.

"Kohl's and Amazon share a customer obsession", Gass added in a statement.

Investors clearly like the news, sending Kohl's shares up 4% in morning trading, in the belief that the Amazon spaces could spur traffic. "They always say you should keep your enemies closer".

Initially, the two companies will open the shops in 10 Kohl's retail locations in Chicago and Los Angeles.

Alexa can answer your questions, control your smart home devices, and even order you items off of Amazon. However, you'll be pleased to learn that Amazon has a deal on the Amazon Tap as well for the same price of $79.99. Kohl's, Macy's and Dillard's all reported a drop in a key sales figure last month for their latest quarters.

The hardware and home improvement retailer announced that it would be facilitating the shopping experience for consumers by joining Google Express, meaning that customers will be able to shop with help from the voice-activated capabilities of Google Home.

The move is part of Amazon's bid to occupy space offline as well as the e-commerce world. After Amazon's acquisition of Whole Foods, Amazon products such as the Echo were being sold at the grocery store.
