Amazon Does It Again

Do you have a love-hate relationship with Amazon? Do you find yourself weary of customer reviews and fraudulent items? Do you need to physically see and touch an item before you buy it? If so, then Amazon can still be for you.

Amazon has opened its first 4-Star store in NYC. That’s right – another physical store. The quirky concept store is located in SoHo and carries Amazon’s top selling items (which must have a rating above four stars or fall under the “new and trending” category). Not only can you physically see the items, but they are also tagged with real, Amazon-approved, customer reviews.

A peek inside the store shows that products range from gadgets, to household items, to dog toys, to Amazon’s own products. Some may find this a bit disorganized, but others would say that is the fun of it! At least you know you aren’t rummaging through 99 cent store, off-brand items. These are Amazon’s best!

Some fun facts about the store:

  • Prime member? Discounts!
  • The price in-store is the same as online, so if the items online are decreasing in price as you shop, the items in your physical cart are decreasing in price as well!
  • There is a “Most Wished For” section full of items most commonly sitting on people’s wish lists.
  • Bring your dogs! Just like Amazon HQ, this little shop is dog friendly!

Is it me? Or does this sound like the perfect store for holiday shopping? You can find me in the “Most Wished For” section picking out gifts for my hardest-to-shop-for family members. If you find yourself in SoHo, check it out and report back!
