Amazon to Open First Retail Store in New York

  • Posted 45 months Ago

Online retail powerhouse Amazon is planning to open their first ever brick-and-mortar store in the middle of New York City. The shop is located at 7 West 34th St. across the way from the Empire State Building in Midtown. It would essentially function as a small warehouse with a limited selection of Amazon’s seemingly infinite catalogue of goods, and would be used for same-day delivery orders within New York, product returns, exchanges, and pickups of online orders - a concept not too dissimilar to what we know in Britain as Argos.

Who knows if the store will be a success, but if it is, we might be seeing Amazon roll-out stores this side of the pond in the not too distant future. Take a look at the planned location of the NY store, set to open in time for the Christmas rush, via The Wall Street Journal below.
