You have shopped at Amazon online, but how would you like to shop at a physical Amazon store? The world’s biggest online retailer will soon be opening its very first physical store. Why not? They are the king of sales and inventory after all.
This will be the first time Amazon has operated an actual brick and mortar store. The company says it is an experiment. We can only guess that if it is a hit, more will pop up in other locations.
The physical store will be based in midtown Manhattan, on 34th Street between the Empire State Building and Macy’s flagship store. This is one of the most central locations in New York City, so it should work out good. This store will also serve as a small warehouse. You will be able to pick up products ordered online at the store. That way people can get there things even faster. It also helps make same same-day delivery a viable option.
Returns will also be accepted at the store. Again, making things faster for some buyers. The store may also be used to highlight its own hardware such as tablets, smartphones and more. The store should be up and running by this holiday season.
