With Best Buy opening in the UK soon, could Amazon be planning a walk-in store too? Sounds pretty crazy to us, considering its doing so well already without the massive overheads a central London store would bring. UPDATE

The Sunday Times has reported that Amazon's currently looking for "bricks-and-mortar stores" to open up in, hopefully adding to its $59.1 billion value. Somewhere customers can get their hands on a Kindle, or perhaps pick up a TV they pre-bought on the website makes sense, but why change a winning formula so late in the game? And why in the UK?

UPDATE: Amazon has refuted claims it's opening a high street store in the UK, stating "We have no plans to open physical stores anywhere in the world."
