Amazon to Open Its First Bricks-and-Mortar Bookstore

Amazon says it will open a brick-and-mortar store in its Seattle, stocked with books and Amazon devices, like Kindle e-readers. The company sent an email to customers announcing the new store in a mall near the University of Washington.

The store will be called Amazon Books.

What a great idea, a place where you can actually browse through books before you buy them.

  1. What would be better is a brick and mortar Amazon front page, i.e., a counter attached to an Amazon warehouse.

    You go there, select your item from a customized Amazon intranet page, and it is immediately retrieved from the warehouse and presented to you. No wait for shipping and no shipping costs.

    These used to be called catalog stores, Best, Consumers, Service Merchandise, etc.

    That' sounds interesting.

    On a side note, I love amazon.com I can browse through more books online and save myself time than I could in actual person. If I want a tactile hands on experience I'll go ride a motorcycle or dirtbike.
