WSJ: Amazon opens (temporary) store in SF

http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2013/11/...-amazon-store/

It's just for two weeks, apparently as an experiment.
(Because Amazon is all about data collection.)
Nice layout.

Quote:

The Seattle retailer has a pop-up shop within a San Francisco mall where it is selling the devices as well as branded covers and power adapters from vending machines. There are sample Kindles on display for shoppers to test.

The store hints at what a retail front from Amazon might look like. Amazon has long been expected to open brick-and-mortar storefronts as Apple or MicrosoftMSFT have, though its CFO told reporters late last year that it had no immediate retail store ambitions.

At the San Francisco popup store, Kindle Paperwhite e-readers were displayed on shelves beside well-worn hardcover books like a volume of Lord Byron’s poetry and Charles Dickens’ “The Pickwick Papers.” Two women staffed the site in Kindle-branded denim shirts.

One of the women said the store would close this weekend after a two-week run.

I'm thinking a kiosk inside Walmart would be neat

All airports I've been to have had Kindles in plentiful supply in their shops. I'm not sure there'd be any particular benefit to Amazon being there in a "branded" shop.
