The online retail giant Amazon opened its first brick-and-mortar bookstore at this University Village location in 2015. It’s not as large or comprehensive as Barnes & Noble, but that’s the point: the selection is more carefully curated based on all kind of online sales data. This is also a place where you can check out the various Amazon reading devices and take a crash-course on how to live with Alexa. Amazon Prime members receive a discount on purchases. Another Amazon Books opened in 2017 in Bellevue at 575 Bellevue Square.
