I have posted more photos and info in a new post. You can find PART 2: The Amazon Books (brick-and-mortar) Store by clicking HERE.
Earlier this month Amazon opened its first ever brick-and-mortar store in Seattle. We have been looking forward to visiting and we were so happy that we finally managed to make a quick stop today.
The store isn't very big but it is nice and cozy. As much as we enjoy buying books online, we really love being in a real bookstore. There is nothing like being able to hold and flip through the physical book and bring it home as soon as you pay for it.
Visiting the store this weekend came with an added bonus too- Amazon is having a 30% off one book promotion online and we found out that we can also get the discount in-store. Even better, the discount is good for one per customer (instead of one per Amazon account). The kids were thrilled!
In addition to books, the Amazon bookstore also has a counter for their Kindles, Fire TV, Fire Tablets, and the Amazon Echo for customers to try out the devices.
If you are in the Seattle area, you can find the Amazon Books store in the University Village (behind Din Tai Fung).
If you are not in the Seattle area, you can also take advantage of the current Amazon promotions. Click HERE to get your $34.99 Fire Tablet and click HERE for the coupon code to take 30% off a print book (up to $10 off).
