London, Wed, 08 Feb 2012 ANI

London, Feb 8 (ANI): Online retail giant Amazon will open its first physical shop in Seattle, according to a report.


According to the US books blog, Good E-reader, the store will focus on selling Kindles, the new Kindle Fire tablet, which has yet to go on sale in the UK, and also a range of 'Amazon Exclusives' physical books, which the technology giant publishes.


The shop will also allow people to sample ebooks using demonstration Kindles and free wifi, The Telegraph reports.


The store, which is being opened in a bid to gauge how profitable a chain of retail stores, in a similar vein to Apple, is expected to open late this year.


According to the report, the shop will occupy a smaller, more "boutique-type" venue, rather than a giant space like Apple's super-sized stores.


The store will be opened in Seattle where the headquarters of Amazon is based.


The shop will also sell technology accessories such as screen protectors. (ANI)
