Amazon Considers Retail Outlet

Amazon is already one of the biggest shopping sites on the Internet.  Could that success translate over into brick and mortar stores?

It appears Amazon is willing to give it a try.

Amazon will open a test store in Seattle to sell Kindles and e-books.

According to Goodereader, the store would be  a boutique shop and only stock “high margin and high-end items.” It would open this fall. Items would probably include those that regularly top its sales lists.

Amazon reportedly would like to find a way for consumers to get their hands on and test their popular e-reader devices.

If the store is a success, it could expand to other regions.

    While the implication is that as soon as they start selling in states the online tax-free aspect will suddenly disappear is a possibility, I find it humorous that they think opening a store where typically high-priced “high-end” items will be sold exclusively will not collapse under the weight of its own overhead.
