Next in Amazon Books' sights: Massachusetts.
After opening stores in Seattle, Wash., and San Diego, Calif., Amazon has confirmed that it will open two more stores, near Portland, Ore., and in Chicago, Ill., in the near future. Now we've seen ads for booksellers to staff a future Amazon Books location in Legacy Place, an outdoor shopping center in Dedham, Mass., in the suburbs southwest of Boston, that opened in 2009.
Besides restaurants, a movie theater and other entertainment, Legacy Place has some 60 stores, including Ann Taylor, Anthropologie, Eddie Bauer, Gap, J. Crew, L.L. Bean, lululemon, Sephora, Urban Outfitters, Victoria's Secret, Whole Foods and Williams-Sonoma.
