Amazon to debut first offline store in Manhattan
Its first brick-and-mortar location
The store will be located on 34th Street in Manhattan and will be the online giant's first brick-and-mortar location. The Amazon store will be situated across the street from the Empire State Building and will open just in time for the festive season.
The store will act as a small warehouse, holding limited products for same-day delivery in New York City only. The store is also expected to host demonstrations and showcases for tech items such as the Kindle, Fire smartphones and Fire TVs.
Customers will be able to order a product online and pick it up from the Manhattan store on the same day.
Amazon are yet to make an official comment on its new project.
