Amazon Go stores are coming to Chicago and San Francisco

Cashier-less store coming to Illinois

Cashier-less store coming to Illinois

In February, Recode reported that Amazon was in talks with a Los Angeles developer about placing a store there, and that it might also open new locations in Seattle. Now, it has posted listings for store managers in San Francisco and Chicago, according to The Seattle Times.

Four months after opening its first Amazon Go cashierless convenience store in its hometown of Seattle, the retailer is coming to San Francisco and Chicago.

The company confirmed that Amazon Go stores would open in the two cities, but did not specify when, the Tribune said.

New stores will be opening in Chicago and San Francisco according to job postings and later confirmation by an Amazon spokesperson.

Nawaz Sharif confirms Pakistani militants carried out 26/11 Mumbai attacks
Union Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told ANI, "Pakistan is exclusively responsible for 26/11 terrorist attack". The lone survivor, Ajmal Amir Kasab, was caught and was sentenced to death at Yerwada Central Jail in Pune in 2012.

Cameras and sensors track what the customers grab off the shelves and charge them after they leave. Earlier reports from Curbed and the San Francisco Chronicle found clues that Amazon was eying retail space in the two cities.

The company first opened "Amazon Go" in Seattle.

Customers, who need to have Amazon's Go smartphone app, swipe their phone on the way into the store. Amazon Go's systems automatically debit their accounts for the items they take, sending the receipt to the app.

The actual Amazon Go store is extremely tech-heavy, was expensive to build and can only sell a narrow range of specially-selected items - nowhere near the 50,000 or so items a typical supermarket stocks. Not only that there are no cashiers, Amazon Go stores don't even have checkout counters, thereby eliminating the need for shoppers to wait in line. It holds its own Amazon Fresh grocery along with Whole Foods.
