Amazon To Open Store in New York
For as long as it's been around, Amazon has competed with brick-and-mortar retailers. And for almost all of that time, there have been rumors that the company would establish some sort of brick-and-mortar retail presence.
Now, it looks like it's finally happening. The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that Amazon will open its first-ever retail location, in "the middle of New York City," on the same block as Macy's (7 West 34th St.) The first store is set to open prior to the holiday season.
