Amazon's push into physical retail is hitting New York City this year.
The mammoth online retailer is opening a brick-and-mortar bookstore inside Manhattan's Time Warner Center at some point in 2017, a spokesperson said. The store will join retailers such as J. Crew, Diesel and Microsoft inside the Shops at Columbus Circle, an indoor mall that also features high-end restaurants. Defunct bookstore chain Borders once operated a location in the same mall.
