According to the San Francisco Gate, online marketplace giant, Amazon, wants to take a step into the real world and open a store in New York City that you can walk into, not just surf into. The store will be located at 34th Street in Manhattan and open this holiday season. At this store, customers will be able to pick up same day deliveries and buy items like the Kindle Fire. Many online retailers have begun to embrace the benefit of the face to face shopping experience, including JustFab Inc. and SwimSpot. Rumors that Amazon had such plans have been present since two years ago, however no one has officially confirmed such plans.
