Amazon is going from the online world to the real world. The online retail giant has opened their first physical book store in Seattle. The prices in-store are the same as the prices on their sites. Shoppers will be able to find 6,000 titles on the shelves of Amazon Books.
The first location opened up in Seattle’s University Park on Tuesday. Jennifer Cast, vice president of Amazon Books, spoke about the store opening in a blog post shared on the company on Tuesday.
She said, “Amazon Books is a physical extension of Amazon.com. We’ve applied 20 years of online bookselling experience to build a store that integrates the benefits of offline and online book shopping. The books in our store are selected based on Amazon.com customer ratings, pre-orders, sales, popularity on Goodreads, and our curators’ assessments. These are fantastic books! Most have been rated 4 stars or above, and many are award winners.”
In addition to the books on the shelves, you will also be able to try their devices in-store. That means, you can take Kindle, Fire TV, and the Fire Tablet for a test drive at their locations.
No word yet on more locations, but if the Seattle store performs well you might see an Amazon Books at your local mall in the future.Sponsored Links
