Eagles' Carson Wentz Joins List Of Athletes With Amazon Stores
Eagles QB Carson Wentz is the "latest athlete to launch a branded online Amazon store," and his storefront is a "hunter's paradise," according to Rob Tornoe of the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER. Wentz, an avid outdoorsman, has his shop "filled with everything from a fake buck archery target ... to a case of beef strips that appears to have customers divided." A promo video shows Wentz "decked out head-to-toe in hunting gear." Wentz joins Phillies RF Bryce Harper as Philadelphia-area athletes to have an Amazon store, though Harper in his is "pushing Rawlings gear and Under Armour apparel." The pages for both Wentz and Harper are "part of a larger celebrity storefront the tech platform launched late last year, populated by actors, musicians, and personalities." Serena Williams, Cam Newton and Dwyane Wade are among other athletes to have their own Amazon stores (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 8/27).
