Amazon Books Opening in Manhattan, Second Store Slated for Boston - PW (Publishers' Weekly)

Wow! Three new stores in one year.
Today, Panzer made a trip to the PW (Publishers' Weekly) site to see what he could find. A little digging around and our inquisitive kitty boy found a post about Amazon's bricks and mortar stores.

According to the post by Judith Rosen, Amazon has officially announced plans to open three new bricks and mortar stores in 2017. One store will be at the Manhattan (New York) Time Warner Center, not the New York City Hudson Yards location as speculated last year. Two stores will be opened in Massachusetts: one in Dedham and one in Lynnfield. The opening of these three will bring Amazon's total bricks and mortar stores to six.

Panzer says, "Hmm ... I wonder if they plan to serve food and alcoholic drinks like Barnes and Noble does in their new stores? Or ... Will Amazon's really be book stores?"

Note: This is a shortish-medium post. Bring a cup of tea and half a muffin for today's reading selection.
