Amazon to open more brick and mortar stores in 13 states

Amazon is set to open a new type of brick-and-mortar store in many locations across the country.

The company said the store, called Amazon 4-Star, will have some of its most popular online items.

The company said although the store is called Amazon 4-Star, items that are rated lower or higher than four stars may be sold. Amazon used a curation system to determine the most popular items.

According to Amazon, products that will be available at the store either have a customer rating of four stars and above, are top sellers or are new and trending products online.

At this point, there are plans for 30 Amazon 4-Star locations, WSOC-TV reported.

Construction has begun on many of the sites, and some of the stores are already open.

States that already have Amazon 4-Star shops are as follows: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Texas and Washington.

New stores are planned for Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Texas and Washington.

Exact locations of existing and planned stores can be found here.

Amazon also has Amazon Books stores in 13 states and Amazon Go stores in Seattle, New York, Chicago and San Francisco.
