Amazon Opens More Book Stores!

If opening a physical store wasn’t interesting enough, Amazon is adding to its fleet of Amazon Book stores already in use.

Amazon told the Wallstreet Journal in an email that they are opening a bookstore in Manhattan sometime this spring. Located at Time Warner Center in Midtown at the edge of Central Park.

In an ironic twist of fate Amazon may have been tempted by such a location as Manhattan rent prices are dropping due to online stores.

Amazon currently has three bookstores located at Seattle, Portland and San Diego. As well as this new one in Manhattan there are also plans for two more, Chicago and Massachusetts.

Amazon’s books are cheaper in it’s physical stores rather than online, but unsurprisingly enough you can sign up for a prime membership in store.
