    E-commerce giant Amazon is planning to open a brick-and-mortar bookstore in Chicago, according to the Chicago Tribune

    The store will be located at 3443 N. Southport Ave in the city's Lake View neighborhood, the former location of the now-shuttered Mystic Celt bar and restaurant, the Tribune reports. 

    "We are excited to be bringing Amazon Books to Southport in Chicago," a spokesperson told the Tribune Thursday.

    The store is scheduled to open next year, according to the Tribune.

    Amazon's first bookstore opened in Seattle last fall.
