Amazon to Open Bookstore in Denver?

Amazon to Open Bookstore in Denver? Amazon Bookstore

There is an unconfirmed report on the local business site Business Den that Amazon is looking to open a bookstore in Denver's Cherry Creek neighborhood:

The online retail giant is looking to bring its brick-and-mortar bookstore concept to the Denver neighborhood, according to a source familiar with the deal.

The store would be about 5,000 square feet, according to the source. Amazon did not respond to a request for comment.

The first Amazon Books location opened in November 2015 in Seattle.

Amazon currently operates 13 bookstores in seven states, and is building stores on DC, Texas and Maryland.

There's also an unconfirmed store in Atlanta, thus making the Denver store Amazon's 18th Amazon Books location - if and when it launches.

It won't be Amazon's first brick-and-mortar location in the Denver Metro area, however; the retailer has a couple pop-up stores in the area, including one at the Cherry Creek Mall, and around a dozen Whole Foods supermarkets.

Denver is also on the short list for Amazon's second HQ.

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Denver is part of the short list of 20 cities for HQ2. 238 cities applied.

    I think Northern Virginia and Montgomery County will win since being close to DC is invaluable.
