A good lot of us do our online shopping at Amazon. You can find most things that you want or need right there in one place. But now Amazon wants you to be able to see and touch the things you're buying so they've opened an Amazon Four Star store in Crossgates Mall. Everything in the store has been given a four star rating. There are tables with sale items, a table with the "most wished for" items and even a "what's trending in Albany" table. And of course there are many things, including lots of electronics, all around the store. So now you can go in and walk around Amazon! If you already have an Amazon account, you can pay for your items with that account right on your phone. So why is Amazon opening stores when many people believe that Amazon is what's causing the downfall of brick and mortar stores? They want to keep trying new and different things. And they understand that as shoppers, we like to pick up and look at the things we're going to buy. And in keeping with the times, they will be sanitizing everything on a regular basis and masks will be required in the store. It sounds like it will be a fun store to check out. Will you shop there? Let me know!
