Is there an Amazon 4-Star store near you? It might not be there for very much longer! Amazon announced that it will close all of its 87 pop-up locations in the U.S. in April of 2019.

The Amazon 4-Star stores were located inside Whole Foods stores, Kohl’s stores, and malls around the United States. These stores featured Amazon products such as Fire Tablets, Kindle e-readers, and Echo smart speakers. Other products in the stores were limited to only those that got at least 4 stars on Amazon.

What can you do if your local Amazon 4-Star store closes? The easiest replacement is Amazon’s website. Obviously, it won’t allow you to try out a Fire Tablet before you buy it. The website will have some deals that were not available at the Amazon 4-Star stores, and a wider selection of products.

The Amazon Go stores, which are cashierless grocery stores, are not closing. These stores sell grab-and-go food items like prepared sandwiches, salads, yogurt, and granola bars. In order to shop at Amazon Go, you must have an Amazon account, the Amazon Go app, and a recent-generation iPhone or Android phone.

Amazon has considered opening as many as 3,000 Amazon Go locations by 2021. Amazon has also said it will open more Amazon 4-Star locations and additional Amazon Books stores this year.

In addition, Amazon is exploring a strategy of strengthening its new supermarket brand by purchasing regional grocery chains that operate at least a dozen stores. Amazon may open grocery shopping centers in San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, Washington D.C., and Philadelphia.

This could mean that your local grocery store chain could be bought by Amazon. The Amazon grocery stores will compete with Walmart. Do some price comparison before you grocery shop. One will have better prices than the other.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
