Amazon Is Closing 87 US Pop-Up Electronics Stores Next Month

The closings are expected to be completed by the end of April, the Wall Street Journal reported earlier on Wednesday, saying it wasn't immediately clear if any Amazon pop-ups outside the USA would be affected.

The pop-up stores, meanwhile, will be shut down by the end of next month, the Journal said.

Amazon is ending the retailer's yearslong experiment with these small shops as the company tinkers with an evolving bricks-and-mortar strategy, the Journal reported.

Amazon's pop-up store at the Queens Center mall in Elmhurst, New York, in late 2016.

The company's shares fell 1.2 per cent to $1672.94 in afternoon trading.

Amazon also has similar stores in number of European countries, opening its first in Spain in November.

Of course we have some players who are very exhausted because the last week was really very hard for us. We are only two points [behind fourth-placed Manchester United] at the moment".

"After much review, we came to the decision to discontinue our pop-up kiosk program", the company said.

While Amazon is the world's biggest online seller, most retail sales still take place in stores - a major reason Amazon is working on building its own stores.

In September 2016, Amazon said it would open as many as 100 pop-up stores in the USA, after a pilot program of six such stores in 2015 proved successful enough to encourage the company to sell more goods in Amazon-branded spaces.

Shares of bookseller Barnes & Noble Inc fell 8.4 per cent after the report.

We are excited to introduce even more customers to these in store shopping experiences where they can discover highly rated books, toys, games, home and kitchen goods, electronics, Amazon devices and more.
