Amazon is ready to tackle its next retail adventure, and it could be coming to a store near you.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Amazon is planning to open department stores in the near future.
“It is unclear what brands Amazon will offer in the stores, although the company’s private-label goods are expected to feature prominently, the people said. Amazon sells scores of products including clothes, furniture, batteries and electronic devices through many of its own labels.”
The company has already opened brick-and-mortar book stores, grocery stores, and cashier-less convenience stores in recent years.
Sources say some of the first Amazon department stores are expected to be in California and Ohio with locations about the size of a Kohl’s or T.J. Maxx.
The Wall Street Journal reports the stores will help Amazon sell more clothing and tech products.
