Amazon has opened a new brick-and-mortar store in New York that sells products rated highly on its website.
The store, named Amazon 4-star, will only sell products rated 4 stars and above, the e-tailer said, or those that are new and/or trending on Amazon.com. Digital price tags will display two prices — Prime and list — as well as average star rating and the total number of reviews. Non-Prime members will be able to sign up for a free 30-day trial in the store.
Some products are organized as part of a special collection, such as “Trending Around NYC,” “Most-Wished-For” or “Frequently Bought Together.”
Initial categories will include consumer electronics, kitchen, home, toys, books and games.
