Amazon to Open Physical Store

Online retailer Amazon is reportedly opening a store in New York City, with plans to be up and running in time for the holidays.

According to the Wall Street Journal, “Amazon’s space at 7 West 34th St., across from the Empire State Building in Midtown, would function as a mini warehouse, with limited inventory for same-day delivery within New York, product returns and exchanges, and pickups of online orders.”

While Amazon has experimented with physical locations before, including temporary pop-up shops to sell Kindle devices, this would be its first dedicated brick-and-mortar location.
