Amazon Go Is On the Move to Two More Cities

Amazon Go Is On the Move to Two More Cities

The job listings are for a store manager and assistant store manager in both cities.

An Amazon spokesperson confirmed to the news outlet that the company was planning to open stores in each of the cities, but did not specify when they would welcome customers.

The cashierless Amazon Go store in Seattle will no longer be the only location. It is recently reported that Amazon had its eye on an Amazon Go location in San Francisco's Union Square neighborhood.

Opening more stores is yet another sign that Amazon is serious about expanding its physical presence.




In February, real estate tracker Curbed Chicago also pointed out that Amazon had acquired a building permit for a location in downtown Chicago. There's no word yet on when the new locations may open, but it has previously been reported that Amazon wants to open six new Go locations this year.

Ever since the opening of the first Amazon Go store this past January, there have been hints from executives that expansion is a given.

In order to shop at Amazon Go, customers need an Amazon account, the free Amazon Go mobile app and a recent-generation iPhone or Android. After that, Amazon's system uses cameras and other sensors to track shoppers and identify what they take off shelves.

Amazon Go's grab-and-go experience allows consumers to quickly pick up all the required items on their grocery list and leave the store without the hassle of checkout lines or counters.
