New store offers highly rated books, Amazon devices, and Stumptown coffee.
|New York Times|
The evolution of 34th Street took a leap in late August as online retail giant Amazon opened a brick-and-mortar store at 7 West 34th Street, right across from the Empire State Building.
It’s only the 11th traditional store Amazon has opened nationwide, and the second in New York City. According to Publisher’s Weekly, the new store offers nearly 3,700 book titles, ranging from best-sellers to “hidden gems” and are selected based in part on five-star reviews by Amazon customers.
There is also retail space for Amazon’s various digital services, including the Kindle Echo and Fire Tablet lines. The store even includes a café serving products from Stumptown Coffee Roasters.
There is no bigger name in retail today than Amazon, and to have the company open one of its first stores here is yet another indication of the high regard major brands have for 34th Street. We welcome Amazon and wish them a long and prosperous run.
