Amazon won’t deliver to Otter Lake

Something troublesome is going on besides Coronavirus. When all non-essential stores closed, most sales went online. Amazon, one of the biggest online sellers, is dominating the market, but they have decided to stop shipping any goods that require special handling to any address in Otter Lake. 

Something troublesome is going on besides Coronavirus. When all non-essential stores closed, most sales went online. Amazon, one of the biggest online sellers, is dominating the market, but they have decided to stop shipping any goods that require special handling to any address in Otter Lake. 
Examples of special handling items include liquids like Drano, larger batteries (i.e. car and phone batteries), and equipment like generators. There are hundreds of thousands of products that require “special handling” and Amazon will not ship any of them to Otter Lake. They ship them just fine to the next town over though – Shawville.
I wondered if Amazon singled out the small town on purpose or if there was a glitch in their massive online e-commerce system, so I reached out to them. The answers I got shocked me!
Amazon customer support refuses to take responsibility and said it has something to do with manufacturers’ warranties. I doubt tens of thousands of manufacturers decided to collude and exclude Otter Lake from their warranties. It’s not unheard of that certain provinces or territories be excluded, but a single small town?
Customer support proceeded to give me valuable advice. Hear this out! They
suggested I ship items to another address! How wonderful! Ridiculous, right?

Stay vigilant!
