Since 2014, the e-commerce company’s tech hub has been operating from the Galleria Towers, close to Galleria Dallas. The Galleria Towers and the three-level mall connect at LBJ Freeway and the Dallas North Tollway.
The retail space at Galleria Dallas that Amazon plans to use is on the mall’s first floor. An area of 4,500 square feet, its renovation will cost $546,000, according to The Dallas Morning News.
Construction is slated to begin in April and be completed in August, The Dallas Morning News reports.
Amazon has a wide variety of store concepts in different malls, from 4-star stores to convenience stores. The retail giant has opened almost 36 4-star stores, including a 4-star store in Stonebriar Centre in Frisco. It also has another 4-star store at the Woodlands Mall in Texas. The 4-star stores stock about 2,000 items that are popular online. All items in the stores are rated four stars and above.
Amazon is working on a dozen 4-star stores, including one at Classen Curve in Oklahoma City.
The company also operates 24 Amazon Book stores, which stock general merchandise. The two Amazon Book stores in Texas are located at Domain Northside in Austin and Baybrook Mall in Friendswood.
Another of the e-commerce giant’s concepts is Amazon Go, a convenience store that uses a “just walk out” technology. At Amazon Go, customers utilize the Amazon Go app, shop at the convenience store, and pay through the app, where a receipt for the items bought is sent within a few minutes. This way, customers can shop without having to use the traditional checkout.
There are no announced Amazon Go stores in Texas as of now.
