Amazon I Have space floating store in Srinagar


8 months ago

On Thursday 27 July 2023, Amazon India announced India’s first-ever floating ‘I Have Space’ store on Dal Lake in Srinagar, Kashmir.

On the launch of the floating store, one of the delivery boys said, “Before launching, I have to go to Ghat No. 7 at Dal Lake using my own Shikara to receive the package. This process is very time taking and fear of missing orders is always there if we are not on time to take parcels but the thing gets changed after launching the floating store. This development will make life convenient for the Dal Lake people.

Now residents of Srinagar’s Dal Lake no longer need to go ashore specifically to receive their Amazon deliveries: Selec Town’s owner Murtaza Khan Kashi (Amazon’s ‘I Have Space’ Partner) delivers packages to the doorsteps of other houseboats in the Dal Lake and Nigeen Lake areas.

What is Amazon’s ‘I Have Space’ program?

As Amazon scales and expands its delivery network across the country, it continues to enable individuals to unlock their entrepreneurial potential and create opportunities to broaden their horizons through its last-mile delivery program, ‘I Have Space’. Through this program, Amazon India partners with local stores and business owners to deliver products to customers within a 2-4 kilometers radius of their store, enabling them to earn additional income. Launched in 2015, the program has more than 28,000 neighborhood and Kirana partners in close to 420 towns and cities across its network in India.

Dr. Karuna Shankar Pande, Director of Amazon Logistics, India, says, “We are thrilled to onboard India’s first floating ‘I Have Space’ store on Dal Lake, Srinagar. This will enable us to provide customers across Dal Lake and Nigeen Lake with reliable, efficient, and fast deliveries.”
