Amazon’s 4-star brick-and-mortar store only sells the best products
On this episode of ‘The Jetsons’, New Yorkers can look forward to something extra-special. Tomorrow Amazon is opening Amazon 4-Star, a new physical brick-and-mortar store that only sells good products. This isn’t Amazon’s first foray into the world of retail. Remember Amazon Go? The retail giant is here to shake things up again with this latest development.
Located in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City, this store is basically like a curated real-life version of Amazon best sellers. Every item sold will either be rated at least 4 stars, a top seller, or a new and trending product. The ever-evolving product offerings are a real-life reflection of what Amazon customers are loving. That means you can go shopping without double-checking a product’s reviews or worrying about whether there’s a better-reviewed option out there.
The store’s layout even mimics the website. There are sections for items that grace a ton of wish lists, an area for Amazon exclusives, and yes, even a “Frequently Bought Together” aisle where you can purchase items that go hand-in-hand. Additionally, customers will be able to get hands-on with Amazon electronics like the Echo Dot or Kindle Paperwhite to help aid in shopping decisions.
Sounds like a physical version of Amazon.com, right? Here’s where things get even crazier. If you have Amazon Prime (which you totally should), you’ll pay the price currently reflected on Amazon.com. If you’re not a Prime member, you’ll pay the MSRP. That means you’ll want to sign up for a free trial before perusing the selection.
Hopefully, we’ll see this innovative storefront hit other cities across the United States, but for now you can find it between Crosby and Lafayette streets in New York City. You can find your closest Amazon physical retailer here if you’re interested in seeing what else your city has to offer.
