Amazon Looks To Open DC Retail Locations, Enlists KLNB
The e-commerce giant keeping brick-and-mortar owners up at night began opening retail locations last year and now has DC in its sights.
In addition, Jeff Bezos' company (the e-commerce site, not the newspaper) announced Friday it would begin collecting sales tax for online purchases made in DC, a move that would be required if it opens a physical location.
Last November, Amazon opened its first bookstore in Seattle at the site of a former Barnes & Noble. In July, it announced its first brick-and-mortar store on the East Coast, in New York City's Hudson Yards. [WaPo]
