As speculation continues to swirl over which city Amazon will select for its second full-size headquarters, the company is planting a flag in the District.

Today, Amazon Books opens at 3040 M Street NW in Georgetown (map), the city's first brick-and-mortar retail location from the company. 

The Amazon Books stores are stocked with books, games, toys and other devices that are highly-rated on Amazon.com. High priority is also given to bestsellers, new releases and books popular on Goodreads and Kindle.

The bookshelves will have user ratings and reviews under the front-facing books. Electronics and devices, including smart home products, will be available for testing. There will also be customer service, unlike in the interaction-free and cashierless Amazon Go stores.

"We’ve applied over twenty years of experience as a customer-focused, online retailer to build a store that integrates the benefits of offline and online shopping and spurs discovery of great books, Amazon devices and customer favorites from Amazon.com," the company said in a statement.
