Amazon closes online book store

US technology giant Amazon is closing its UK based book Depository.

The Parent company Amazon has told customers it will cease operations later this month after almost two decades in business.

It comes after it announced plans to cut thousands of jobs as it shakes up its businesses globally.

The news was met with sadness by many of Book Depository’s customers from around the world.

BBC reports that as part of the shakeup, the company announced changes to its book business, including the decision to stop selling magazines and newspaper subscriptions on its e-book device Kindle.
