San Diego is getting an Amazon Books store

It’s coming this summer

That’s a little surprising – I’d expect bigger cities, such as New York, Chicago, or LA, to be ahead of San Diego in line.

It’ll be at the Westfield UTC mall.

The San Diego store will presumably resemble the Seattle location, which sells a limited selection of Amazon’s best-reviewed books. That venue also doubles as a showroom for the e-commerce brand’s expanding hardware lineup, which includes its Kindle, Fire TV, Fire tablets and Echo.

The future Amazon Books store at UTC is situated adjacent to the Tesla store and across from the Apple store.

Other online retailers have also put down brick-and-mortar roots at that shopping center, including Bonobos menswear and eyeglass company Warby Parker.
