Amazon’s University Village bookstore in Seattle won’t be a one-off after all. After opening the location back in November of last year, Amazon now plans to open hundreds of additional bookstores across the United States. As reported by CNBC, the news comes from a mall CEO who revealed to Dow Jones that the stores will be a “physical extension of Amazon.com” and stocked based on customer ratings and sales from the e-commerce site. Interestingly, Amazon plans to offer the books at the same low prices that can be found online.
There are currently few additional details, but between 300 and 400 Amazon Books stores are expected to open in all.
