Amazon has taken a step into the unknown by opening up its first physical non-food store outside the US on Wednesday.

Based at the Bluewater shopping centre in Kent, UK, the 3,500 square foot store will sell a range of books, toys, homewares and Amazon devices that have been given a four-star rating by its online customers.

Andy Jones, director of Amazon 4-star in the UK, declined to say how many of the stores it intends to open in the country, or whether it would take the format elsewhere in Europe.
