Amazon Plans to Open Brick-and-Mortar Bookstore on North Shore
Amazon has plans to open its second brick-and-mortar bookstore in Massachusetts—this time, on the North Shore.
The e-commerce giant already intends to open a bookstore at the Legacy Place shopping mall in Dedham, along with locations in San Diego, Portland, Chicago, and Boston proper. Now, MarketStreet Lynnfield off Route 128 is slated to get bookstore as well, the Boston Business Journal reports.
Amazon posted six jobs for its Lynnfield bookstore online, including openings for an assistant store manager and a books associate.
“Amazon Books is a physical retail store that offers a curated selection of books and an array of Amazon devices,” the listings read. “We’ve applied twenty years of online bookselling experience to build a store that integrates the benefits of retail and online book shopping. Prices are the same as those offered by Amazon.com and the knowledgeable staff tailor their approach to the unique needs of each customer, to deliver an exceptional instore experience.”
Amazon opened its first brick-and-mortar in 2015 near its headquarters in Seattle.
