San Francisco, Chicago About To Get Amazon Go Cashierless Stores

Recode reported earlier this year that Amazon plans to open as many as six additional Amazon Go stores beyond the original Seattle location. Amazon promises customers will never have to wait in line or pull out your wallet.

Amazon is opening additional Amazon Go locations in Chicago and San Francisco as the company expands its cashier-less grocery store concept across the nation.

Located at 2131 7th Seattle, Amazon Go is a roughly 1,800-square-foot store that uses "Just Walk Out Technology", relying on cameras and sensors to track what shoppers remove from shelves and what they put back.

After all, the Knicks are long overdue, having not moved up in a lottery since the inaugural one in '85 that netted Patrick Ewing. The 20-year veteran knows the Mavs won a total of just 57 games the past two seasons, and he realize that has to change.

For taking up the advantage of shopping in the Seattle store, customers need to first download the Amazon Go app and link it to a payment method. While shoppers won't get face-to-face interaction at checkout, the company said there will be plenty of human employees restocking shelves, checking ID for wines and working security. The Chicago store would be built at 203 North LaSalle Street, in the heart of the Loop.

Amazon executives had hinted during the January opening of the pilot store on the company's Seattle headquarters campus that they planned to expand, but the company had been silent on its road map. No checkout is required; people are charged for the items they take shortly after leaving the store.

Digital Third Coast and Shorr Packaging released a new poll telling me: "It's Amazon's world, we're all just living in it. Literally". There is no word yet on when the Amazon Go store would open in Chicago. It has opened more than a dozen bookstores, taken over space in some Kohl's department stores and bought Whole Foods past year, giving it 470 grocery stores. It bought the upscale chain in June 2017 for $13.7 billion. Amazon now has job listings for store manager positions in both San Francisco and Chicago.
