DENVER (CBS4) – A plan for a brick-and-mortar Amazon bookstore in Denver appears to be finalized. Amazon Books has more than a dozen locations across the country but none so far in Colorado.

BusinessDen reports that city permit applications indicate the e-commerce giant will open a store in a building that’s under construction in the city’s Cherry Creek North shopping area. The building is called Financial House, and it’s being built at the corner of 2nd Avenue and Detroit Street.

A location is also scheduled to open soon at Park Meadows Mall in Lone Tree, according to the Amazon Books website.

Amazon didn’t share a comment with BusinessDen about the plans. The company says its chain bookstore is different than others because every book has its cover facing out — not its spine.
