Amazon announced it would start selling e-commerce in its warehouses.
It announced its first store in the United States.
The company also said it plans to open a second Amazon Center in Seattle, Washington, in 2018.
A company spokesperson said the first store will be “the first physical Amazon store to offer an e-retail destination for customers, while the second store will offer customers a new retail experience.”
The company said the Seattle store will also feature a virtual marketplace and a new way for customers to buy Amazon merchandise.
Amazon says the new store will have the same “one-stop shopping” experience as its flagship store in Seattle.
“Amazon will expand its physical footprint in Seattle with a new Amazon Center, which will provide a new and better shopping experience for customers in the Seattle area,” the spokesperson said.
The new Seattle store also includes a virtual shopping experience, Amazon’s first for the Seattle market, the spokesperson added.
In a recent conference call with investors, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said the company is “looking for a very specific type of store experience that’s really unique for Seattle.”
That’s why the company will be launching an ecommerce store, the company said.
“We are excited to offer that,” the company CEO said.
Amazon’s Seattle store is set to open in October 2018.
The Seattle store, which the company describes as “a unique shopping experience,” will have a “one stop shopping” service for customers and Amazon’s “most-popular” products.
The store will feature Amazon’s Amazon Prime video streaming service, as well as Amazon’s Alexa personal assistant, a product designer, and a manager.
Amazon said the new Seattle location will also offer “an Amazon Center” with a “new retail experience,” the Amazon spokesperson added, “and a new approach to product design.”
In January 2018, Amazon announced that it would be expanding its retail presence in the US.
The expansion was led by the Seattle-based company’s first store.
“Seattle is a very special location for Amazon.
We have been working very closely with Amazon for more than a decade to build our presence here in Seattle,” said Amy Myers, vice president of product management at Amazon, in a statement at the time.
“With this expansion, Amazon will now offer a one-stop online shopping experience in the heart of the city.”
The Seattle center, which Amazon says will be the company’s second physical Amazon Store, is expected to open by the end of 2018.
Amazon has said the store will become a full-fledged store.
The Amazon Seattle store may also include a virtual space that customers can use to browse and shop products, as opposed to a physical location.
“This is a really exciting and exciting moment for the Amazon community, Amazon customers and the entire Amazon ecosystem,” Myers said.
A spokesperson for Amazon said “the Seattle store’s online shopping features will be focused on Amazon’s Prime Video service.”
The spokesperson said Amazon has plans to expand the Seattle Seattle store in 2018, which is expected “to expand its footprint and meet customer demand.”
“We’ll be open in Seattle in 2019,” the spokesman added.
Amazon declined to comment on the number of employees it has in Seattle at the Seattle center.
