Riding the colossal success of the Kindle, Amazon is gearing up to emerge from the virtual world into the real one. In its home base of Seattle, Amazon plans to open a physical store (a la Apple, Inc.) and showcase its ever-expanding line of e-reader products.
Pros: Now Amazon consumers will be able to physically touch and test its products before making a purchase.
Cons: With its imposing online only presence, Amazon has flourished in comparison with traditional retailers who are burdened with expensive leases. Will Amazon (or its prices) falter with this added expense?
Watch out Apple, Barnes & Noble, and every other major gadget retailer, Amazon is coming to town!
QUESTION: Are you a fan of Amazon or concerned about their possible world takeover?
