PORTLAND, Ore. – A brand new Amazon Books store opened today at Washington Square mall. It’s one of three open across the country. Another store is in Seattle, while another one is in San Diego.
The new Amazon Books can be found next to Michael Kors and Bath and Body Works. It’s open from 10:00am-9:00pm Monday through Saturday, and 10:00am-7:00pm Sunday.
It combines the online shopping experience with the in-store shopping experience. Customers can scan bar codes under books with their smart phones to learn more about the books, as well as add them to a virtual wish-list.
The store only stocks books that have the best ratings online, those with four stars or more. Customers can also purchase other Amazon products, like the Kindle or Echo.
