Sources Say More Amazon Go Stores to Open in Seattle, LA

Some of the new stores are likely to open in Seattle, where the first Amazon Go is based, and in Los Angeles, sources familiar with the matter told Recode.

The first Amazon Go store opened just a month ago, but the franchise's next steps may already be in the works.

It's possible that Amazon could open even more of the stores this year in spots not yet disclosed. In Los Angeles, the company is considering bringing a Go store to famed outdoor mall The Grove.

Amazon's much-heralded convenience store of the future, Amazon Go, may seem like a insane experiment. More recently, Amazon was said to prepare a new shipping service in Los Angeles that would pit it against the big industry carriers UPS and FedEx.

Amazon declined Business Insider's request for details, saying that they don't comment on "rumors or speculation".


Locals were excited to check out the new store, with lines forming around the block to enter on opening day.

Inside the store, a system of computer vision, AI, and other sensors detect each item shoppers take off (or place back on) shelves.

The stores feature what has been dubbed as Just Walk Out Technology, which charges customers for their items upon exit with no need to stop and check out with a cashier. Customers are billed once they leave the store.

Despite the report, there is still no sign that Amazon intends to introduce this technology into its Whole Foods stores in the near future.

The company has not yet disclosed its plans to roll out the technology to a wider audience, but it's not expected to remain in the single Seattle location forever.
