Amazon.com to open first physical store: report


SAN FRANCISCO:  Online retail colossus Amazon.com plans to open its first brick-and-mortar store in New York ahead of the year-end holiday season, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

The shop will be located across from the famed Empire State Building and act as more of a tangible link to customers than a place for browsing, according to the report.

Amazon’s Manhattan venue would serve as a warehouse where customers could arrange quick deliveries or pick up products ordered online, as well as tend to returns or exchanges of items they have purchased, the Journal reported.
