Amazon Invents the Retail Store

Sure, anybody can sell you a book through the internet but here’s a radical idea — what if the book was already located in a building in your town where you could drive and get it immediately without waiting for delivery?

Darned if those crazy cats at Amazon haven’t stolen a march on the rest of the industry with their plan to build a bricks-and-mortar store in Seattle.

The store will market e-readers like Kindle and Kindle Fire, and Amazon-published books (which, incidentally, the Canadian chain Indigo is refusing to stock.)
