Amazon 4-Star stores coming to South Florida
The first Amazon 4-Star store in the Miami area will be a 5,000-square-foot location on Lincoln Road at the former site of Nexxt Café.
The Amazon 4-Star store at 700 Lincoln Road will carry curated products that are new, trending and rated 4-stars and above by Amazon customers. Products will come from most of Amazon’s categories, including electronics, toys, games, kitchen and home.
The website Narcity says another Amazon 4-Star store is opening at The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens.
Although the pandemic has disrupted retailers across the nation, the Lincoln Road Business Improvement District and property owners have been diversifying the tenant mix along the eight-block promenade to create a curated balance of national retailers along with locally owned businesses and select new-to-market emerging brands.
Other new tenants set to open on Lincoln Road include local restaurants Harry’s Pizzeria by James Beard Award winner Michael Schwartz, Cortadito Coffee House and national retailer Dr. Martens. New-to-market brands include Showfields, an experiential retailer that opened its only other location in New York City’s Bond Street in 2018, and Andres Carnes des Res, an international club/restaurant concept out of Colombia.
“The evolution of retail coupled with the ongoing aftermath of a health pandemic have proven that when it comes to retail space, the three primary principles of real estate still apply: location, location, location,” says Tim Schmand, executive director of the Lincoln Road Business Improvement District. “The Lincoln Road District is home to some of the region’s best retailers, cultural venues, and dining destinations and it’s this winning formula that has allowed us to overcome adversity while continuously attracting both visitors and tenants to the Road for over a century.”
