Amazon Go targets Chicago, San Francisco for new stores

Today the word comes down that Amazon Go stores are set to arrive in Chicago and San Francisco, and the company is looking for store managers in both locations. Earlier reports from Curbed and the San Francisco Chronicle found clues that Amazon was eying retail space in the two cities.

While the Amazon Go store in Seattle doesn't bear Whole Foods' branding, it does stock plenty of the store's signature 365 brand products.

Customers simply have to download the Amazon Go app and scan a unique barcode that automatically identifies them when they walk into a store. Amazon's technology, including overhead cameras, keeps track of what they buy and charges customers after they leave.

The technology used by them can be termed as an intelligent one.

The "Amazon Go" initiative follows Amazon's push to open other physical stores. In addition there is a small grocery and sundry section, ready-to-heat meals, meal kits, beer and wine and a few shelves of Amazon-logo gear aimed at tourists. No checkout is required; people are charged for the items they take shortly after leaving the store. There are no checkout lines and no checkout counters, though staff hover helpfully to aid new customers who are hesitant about how it all works. This time, it'll be to mock the company for understanding so little about the context in which their poll is released. Currently, there is only one Amazon Go store in Seattle which was made public way back in January. It bought grocer Whole Foods previous year for $13.7billion, which gave it 470 stores, and has opened more than a dozen bookstores.
