Jan 29th 2021 – Welcome to NOTAMAZON.IE. Under duress from lockdown and the shopiholicness of my missus continually buying things off the AMAZON website I tried to convince her that with the advent of BREXIT and the uplift in shopping costs from the UK she may like to try and find alternative sources for her goodies.
She complained that she didn’t have time to spent hours and hours looking at the Internet for stores that ‘might’ sell the things she liked as it was just a simple search on AMAZON to find the stuff she wanted.
With that in mind and in conjuction with a press story I read in the New York Times about a website in Canada that concentrated on local stores not connected with AMAZON I decided to invest some time in this venture which, by definition, is NOT AMAZON.
Its an attempt to bring together as many stores, in Ireland, as possible and in a single space that might prove a good idea in allowing the shopalolics of Ireland to shop local.
This site will develop & grow over the months ahead so if any of you reading this have any ideas on making it better then please contact me via the CONTACT US page and share your thoughts.

Changing the way we shop – In depth article from RTE on how the major forces of Covid-19 and Brexit are forever changing the way we shop!
A further analysis piece from the Irish Times indicates that AMAZON is about to change the way the way we shop in Ireland.
A recent article in the Irish Times indicates that it may not be too long before there is an actual AMAZON.IE to plug into. Baldonnell, in Dublin, seems to be the place where a new fulfilment centre is to be located. Whilst this won’t help all the smaller stores that rely on the Irish shoppers to visit their on-line stores this site makes no apologies for promoting them.
