Earlier this year it was revealed that Walnut Creek would be getting the Bay Area’s first brick & mortar Amazon Bookstore in Broadway Plaza & while we await an exact opening date for that store, San Jose’s Amazon Bookstore has opened up its location at Santana Row. A soft opening was Tuesday and a grand opening is Thursday, August 24.

Amazon Bookstore To Open In Walnut Creek

Santana Row will be home to its first bookstore in six years (Borders closed in 2011). It’s 4,100 sq. ft. of retail space & will have 15 employees.

The Mercury News is reporting that Amazon is also hiring for future locations in Cupertino & San Francisco so we can expect more of these new types of bookstores to pop up in the Bay Area soon.

The stores will feature the highest-rated books on Amazon (4.8 stars, or higher) & serve as a place to purchase Amazon products like the Kindle & Echo voice-activated speakers.
