A new bookstore, offering electronics and more, has opened up shop in the neighborhood. Located at 2101 Westlake Ave. in Belltown, the fresh arrival is called Amazon 4-Star.
Amazon 4-Star is one of more than 25 brick-and-motor stores that Amazon has opened across the country. The store only offers products that have received four stars or more in online customer ratings. Here, you'll find books, electronics, games, toys and both kitchen and home ware.
"Under each item is a digital price tag that updates as Amazon algorithms adjust pricing — usually by pennies — as many as five times a day," the Seattle Times wrote in a preview of the store.
With a 4.5-star rating out of four reviews on Yelp so far, the new bookstore has already made a good impression.
Yelper Vincent V. wrote a review on the new spot, saying, "It's nice being able to shop somewhere and know you're already getting a good review on something. I hope they open up more of these. I think the idea is really cool. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I will definitely come back again."
Head on over to check it out: Amazon 4-Star is open from 10 a.m.–8 p.m. on Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m.–7 p.m. on Sunday.
