New Yorkers will have a new way to browse Amazon’s best-selling book titles — in a physical store.
Later this year, the retail giant will open a bookstore at the Time Warner Center in Manhattan. Also on the slate for 2017 is a location in Chicago, and the Boston suburb of Dedham, Mass. Stores are also planned for Lynnfield, Mass., and Paramus, N.J.
Amazon’s first physical bookstore opened in Seattle in 2015, followed by two additional locations, in Portland, Ore., and San Diego. The format looks like a traditional bookstore, but uses online data to determine which titles to stock.
