The store, located on Spring Street between Crosby and Lafayette, is different from the Amazon Bookstore brick-and-mortar locations the retail chain already operates in NY, in that the SoHo shop only stocks merchandise that is rated at least 4 out of 5 stars by online customer reviews. There are also sections for top sellers; new, trending, and most-wished-for items; and products that are popular with NY buyers, all based on data from the online store. Other categories at the store include toys, games, devices, consumer electronics, kitchen, home, books and more. A section called Trending Around NYC showcases products popular in the city.

Called Amazon 4-star, the location is meant to be a store where customers can discover products the retailer is confident they will love. Collectively, the products that comprise the store's inventory have garnered more than 1.8 million 5-star customer reviews on the web.

The Amazon 4-Star store is a great spot to find inspiration for Holiday gifts.

Amazon 4-Star is the newest foray into retail for Amazon.

In Amazon 4-star, customers can also test-drive Amazon devices along with smart home accessories that work with Alexa.

The company is considering a plan to open as many as 3,000 new AmazonGo locations in the next few years, people familiar with matter told Bloomberg last week.

In a blog post covering the opening, Amazon said it had designed the store as a "reflection of customers".

The store, located on 72 Spring Street, is a new type of retail store helping customers discover products which they might be interested in. It is likewise taking off littler basic supply shops known as Amazon Go, where in-store innovation enables clients to exit with things and have their charge cards charged without ceasing by money enroll. There will also be some "Trending Around NYC" according to Amazon, which the company is able to track on its website.
