Amazon has opened its latest brick-and-mortar bookstore in Dedham, Mass. (its first on the East Coast). But Peter Reynolds, who owns an independent bookstore just up the road, isn’t too worried.
He says, “At first my heart sort of sunk a bit, but I realized quickly the response from our friends was: ‘What you have in your independent bookstore is very, very different than what Amazon is providing.’ And I think that we’re going to be OK.“
