The day Amazon started – level 3

05-07-1994 was founded by Jeff Bezos on July 5, 1994, as a small online bookstore in his garage in Washington.

Bezos had previously worked in finance and had a passion for technology. He quickly realized that he could use the internet to offer a much larger selection of books than any physical bookstore and at lower prices.

Bezos chose the name “Amazon” because it was unique and memorable, conveying the idea of something big and powerful. The Amazon River is the largest river in the world by volume, and Bezos wanted his company to be just as large and powerful. He also liked that the name began with the letter “A,” which would put the company at the top of alphabetical lists.

As grew in popularity, Bezos expanded its offerings beyond books to include music, movies, electronics, and more.

Today, is one of the world’s largest and most successful companies.

Difficult words: memorable (easy to remember), convey (to communicate), offerings (things for sale).

What other services has expanded to offer since its founding in 1994?
