Amazon is opening a physical bookstore in New York City in 2017

New, 5 comments

Coming soon to Columbus Circle at 59th street

In July 2016, there were reports that Amazon would be opening a physical location in New York City. Earlier today, The Wall Street Journal confirmed plans for an Amazon Books location in the Shops at Columbus Circle mall area in Time Warner Center on 59th Street.

The New York location joins the three existing stores in Seattle, Portland, and San Diego, along with the two planned sites in Massachusetts and Chicago that have yet to open. Like the other Amazon Books locations, the New York store will presumably offer equivalent prices to Amazon's online site for Prime customers, integration of Amazon and Goodreads reviews, and Kindle devices for purchase.
