Amazon to close majority of its physical stores, the company including all 68 Amazon Books


Amazon to close majority of its physical stores, the company including all 68 Amazon Books, Amazon 4-Star, and Amazon Pop Up locations across the United States and the United Kingdom, as the company refocuses on its grocery and fashion stores.


When the first Amazon Books location opened in Seattle in 2015, it was one of the primarily online storefront's first physical retail experiences. Amazon has since expanded to 24 bookstores across the United States, all of which are now scheduled to close. In 2018, the company expanded its retail efforts with Amazon 4-Star, a more broadly focused store that sold products with four-star or higher ratings curated from Amazon's digital storefront, as well as — of course — Amazon's own first-party products (including Echo, Kindle, and Fire TV devices).
