Amazon opening its first store, and in the last place you'd expect

Amazon opening its first store, and in the last place you'd expect

Amazon.com started as an online bookstore in 1994. Before the '90s were over, it became the largest Internet retailer out there, selling books, streaming movies and music, and just about any product you can think of.
