According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, after years of stamping retailers, Amazon will soon open its own department stores with a focus on clothing, electronics and home goods.

An Amazon spokeswoman declined to confirm the news or provide details. “We do not comment on rumors and speculation, " she said in an email. (Amazon founder Jeff Bezos owns the Washington Post.)
The e-commerce giant, which had sales of $ 386 billion last year, has been expanding through physical retail in recent years, opening grocery stores, bookstores and specialty pop-ups across the country. Analysts say that its latest foray — although unexpected-provides an opportunity to reach customers in a new way.
