Amazon Opens the Second "Shit People Like to Buy" Store in Denver
For the past several months we have known that Amazon was opening two retail locations in the Denver area. Amazon had previously said they would both be Amazon Books locations (I saw it on the website) but now that one is opening this week, we have learned that one of the stores is no longer a bookstore.
This week, however, Amazon said the Park Meadows store will be the company’s second “Amazon 4-star” store.
Rather than focusing on books, the store is stocked with a variety of products, all of which are rated at least four stars on Amazon.com. (The website uses a five-star rating system, with five stars the top rating.)
The Park Meadows store features stations like “Most-Wished-For,” consisting of products that most often are added to Amazon wish lists, and “Trending Around Denver,” with goods that are particularly popular locally, according to the company.
The products are identified with cards that include quotes from customer reviews.
The store is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
The other Amazon store in Denver will be an Amazon Books, or so the construction permits suggest. This too might change.
