Amazon reportedly may open convenience stores


Watch out, 7-Eleven and other c-store retailers. Amazon is thinking about entering your turf.


Having opened bookstores and with a planned entry into the drive-up grocery store space under construction in Seattle, the Internet giant is now considering opening convenience stores,  reported the Wall Street Journal.


The c-stores, with an internal code name of “Project Como,” would be available only to AmazonFresh subscribers, according to the report.


The WSJ report says that Amazon “aims to build small brick-and-mortar stores that would sell produce, milk, meats and other perishable items that customers can take home.” Primarily using their mobile phones or, possibly, touch screens around the store, customers could also order peanut butter, cereal and other goods with longer shelf lives for same-day delivery.”
