After 20 years as an online bookseller, Amazon is to open its first traditional bookstore.
The store will open in Seattle, in the United States, and will be called Amazon Books.
Described by Amazon as a "physical extension" of its website, it will stock books that pre-order and sell well online and are rated highly by online customers.
Shoppers at the store will also be able to purchase devices from Amazon's Kindle, Fire TV and Fire Tablet and Echo ranges.
