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 is planning to open two more cashier-less Amazon Go grocery stores in Chicago and San Francisco. It is recently reported that Amazon had its eye on an Amazon Go location in San Francisco's Union Square neighborhood. Once inside the store, customers can grab what they need and just walk out.

In addition to these two new locations, there are allegedly still a few more Amazon Go stores waiting to be built.

After shoppers check in by scanning their unique QR code, overhead cameras work with weight sensors in the shelves to precisely track which items they pick up and take with them.

On offer at the store are delicious ready-to-eat breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack options made fresh every day by Amazon's on-site chefs and favorite local kitchens and bakeries. Amazon Go's systems automatically debit their accounts for the items they take, sending the receipt to the app.

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 system, which Amazon calls "just walk out shopping", ran into some technical difficulties during almost 14 months of employee-only trials, people familiar with the matter said.
