While still a primarily online store, Amazon isn't turning its back on physical retail establishments.

After opening its first brick-and-mortar store in Seattle last year, the company's CEO Jeff Bezos confirmed at Amazon's shareholder meeting that more stores are coming.

"We re definitely going to open additional stores; how many we don t know yet, Bezos said at the meeting according to a report from The Wall Street Journal.

In these early days, it s all about learning rather than trying to earn a lot of revenue."

Currently Amazon's Seattle location is mostly a bookstore, and the company is already building another location in San Diego.

Still, Bezos' statement is a bold one, so we'll likely see numerous additional Prime membership perks rolling out soon.
