Amazon plans to open an Amazon Books store in the Westfield Century City mall in Los Angeles, Calif., the Los Angeles Business Journal reported. This would be the 14th Amazon book and electronics store. Since late 2015, the company has opened six Amazon Books locations and has confirmed plans to open another six. It hasn't confirmed plans to open a store in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C.
The Century City store will have 5,227 square feet of space. The mall, currently undergoing a $1 billion renovation, is owned by Westfield, which also owns shopping centers where other Amazon Books are or will be located: the UTC mall in San Diego and Garden State Plaza in Paramus, N.J.
The Business Journal said that Amazon had been "poking around" several area shopping districts for months, including locations on Melrose Avenue and Old Pasadena, in Pasadena.
