The online retailer is going to open its first physical store for Manhattan (perhaps temporarily) ahead of the holiday shopping season. According to the publication in the Wall Street Journal from a few days ago, the largest e-commerce retailer in the United States will set up a store in Manhattan for the holiday shopping season. The journal cited anonymous sources close to the company and familiar with the matter.
Amazon didn’t comment on the issue, so it remains unclear whether the store will be permanent or open just for a holiday. According to the article, the store could act as Amazon warehouse and a showcase for inventory.
It is known that the giant online retailer has never opened brick-and-mortar stores. However, the company has installed pick-up lockers in the largest cities. The company was seen investing huge money in the rapid fulfillment of orders. For example, Amazon added 6 new distribution centers and 15 sorting centers ahead of the holiday season. At the moment, company operates forty total distribution centers in the United States.
Despite the article in the Wall Street Journal, Seattle-based Amazon claimed that it has made no announcements about a new location in Manhattan.

|I wonder if an Amazon shop will have different queuing lines like the delivery rates?|
|Amazon is well known of its online selling if it will become a normal store i think it will not click|
|Now, normally I wouldn't advocate arson...|
|They should set up ordering kiosk in malls and such like a redbox does with videos, obviously you wont get the item on demand but I think it would do good, also why not set up stores and pick up locations at distribution centers, combine the 2 so overhead costs are minimal while saving on shipping that would otherwise be free to customer while being an overhead for the company. Have kiosk set up that only has the available items for direct pickup and eliminate the overhead of people.||
