Amazon is bringing another bricks and mortar bookstore to New York City.
An Amazon spokesperson confirmed that the company plans to open a second bookstore in New York City later this year at 7 West 34th Street, in Manhattan. The storefront, which now bears a banner reading “Amazon Books Coming Soon,” is across the street from the Empire State Building.
An Amazon spokesperson told PW that the store is on track to open this summer. The spokesperson went on: “We are currently hiring store managers and associates.”
The online retailer had already announced its intention to open an Amazon Books outlet at the Time Warner Center sometime in 2017.
The New York City store on 34th Street is the 11th bricks-and-mortar bookstore that Amazon has either opened, or announced plans to open.
