Amazon has recently announced that it is about to open its first-ever Amazon 4-star opens in New York City’s Soho neighborhood tomorrow. And as the name implies, everything on its shelves has earned at least a four-star review average from Amazon’s customers.
The store will also have new and “trending” items and best-sellers regardless of review score. Of course you’ll find a ton of Amazon hardware, but there’s plenty of third-party stuff too covering “devices, consumer electronics, kitchen, home, toys, books, and games.”
“Today, the average rating of all the products in Amazon 4-star is 4.4 stars, and collectively, the products in store have earned more than 1.8 million 5-star customer reviews,” the company said in a press release introducing the retail store. Amazon already operates a couple of its regular Amazon Books locations in Manhattan. As with those stores, shoppers at Amazon 4-star will pay the Amazon.com price for an item if they’re a Prime member, non subscribers will have to pay the list price unless they want to start a free trial of Prime to get the lower one.
Here’s more from Amazon on what’ll be inside:
Throughout the store there are features like “Most-Wished-For,” a collection of products that are most added to Amazon.com Wish Lists; “Trending Around NYC,” hot products that NYC-area customers are buying on Amazon.com; “Frequently Bought Together”; and “Amazon Exclusives.” These features, along with customer review cards with quotes from actual customer reviews, make it fun and easy to shop.
Now after the success of Cashier less store this is a new thing that the company is trying to bring and its good as there is nothing at Amazon rated 4 star which is totally bad unless the rating is just for game.
