I'm a bit confused here. First, Circuit City wants back in the retail store business, because more and more people are shopping online. Now, after Amazon has ran many other bookstores out of business with their fantastic online presence, they want to open retail locations as well. Maybe they are making too much money and need a way to lose some? Amazon wants physical retail presence, but a bookstore is probably not the way to go. The Kindle is popular for a reason. You get books - without putting on pants.
Amazon, a company famous for its universal online store, took its first step into the world of physical retail late last year, when it opened the first Amazon book store in Seattle. But according to a report from the Wall Street Journal, that may have just been the tip of the iceberg in terms of the company’s ambition for physical retail presence.
