Amazon’s Set To Close 87 Pop-Up Kiosks

Amazon.com, Inc., the Seattle, Washington-based, multinational technology company that focused on e-commerce, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence is shifting its strategy by closing all 87 of its U.S. pop-up kiosks.

The kiosks over the years have facilitated an easy and convenient purchase of electronic gadgets by customers in malls, Kohl’s department stores, and Whole Foods groceries.

“Across our Amazon network, we regularly evaluate our businesses to ensure we’re making thoughtful decisions around how we can best serve our customers,” an Amazon spokesperson reportedly said in a statement recently.

The spokesperson further stated that Amazon is expanding Amazon Books and Amazon 4-star retail stores.

Amazon 4-star stores, which operates in New York City, Denver, and Berkeley, Calif., sell various products, including consumer electronics, kitchen products, and books that are rated 4 stars or above by customers on Amazon.com.

The pop-up kiosks are expected to close by the end of April, according to press reports.
