Need a spatula now? Amazon has a new store for that

NEW YORK (AP) — Amazon is expanding its physical presence again, this time opening a 4,000-square-foot store that sells a wide range of products, including shower curtains, Hallmark cards and baby bottles.

The store, called Amazon 4-star, opened Thursday in New York and will only offer Amazon.com's best-selling items or those that get four or more star ratings on its website. The products in the store can be changed out weekly, based on changing customer reviews or what is or isn't selling well, said Cameron Janes, who oversees Amazon's physical stores.

The new store is another sign that Amazon is serious about expanding its brick-and-mortar presence. It already has more than a dozen bookstores around the country, recently opened four cashier-less convenience stores and bought the Whole Foods grocery chain a year ago.
