Amazon could be coming to a mall near you. The company, which started as an online bookseller and is often cited as the reason bookstores have gone out of business, is planning up to 400 brick-and-mortar locations of Amazon Books.

The intel comes from the CEO of Global Growth Properties, which operates malls across the country.

The first Amazon Books opened in Seattle in November 2015, described as a physical extension of Amazon.com, with its stock chosen by the customer ratings and sales.
