Cashierless Amazon stores coming to Chicago

Posted May 15, 2018

"As Amazon continues its aggressive expansion and historic innovation, many US cities are being treated to remarkable perks, including Free two-hour alcohol delivery, self-checkout grocery stores, and unlabeled, unpackaged returns to Kohl's".

The cashierless Amazon Go store in Seattle will no longer be the only location. It has posted job listings for store managers in the cities on its own site, which were first noticed by 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.

Earlier this year, Recode reported that Amazon had plans of opening as many as six new Amazon Go outlets in 2018. In February, real-estate tracker Curbed took note of a building permit for construction of a 625-square-foot Amazon store in Chicago's Loop district. Los Angeles and San Francisco are the top two cities that are great to live in if you love Amazon.

Shoppers enter the stores by scanning a smartphone app. Customers use an app called "Go" to enter the store.

Ina Rogers, 30, mother of the children, who was charged with child endangerment, denied the allegations in an interview on Monday. Following the sentence in the Turpin case, California authorities have identified yet another example of child torture.

In addition, the San Francisco Chronicle reported on May 13 that a formal announcement of an Amazon store near the city's Union Square was expected in the coming weeks. "No lines, no checkout", according to the company.

Cameras and sensors track what the customers grab off the shelves and charge them after they leave.

There are no cashiers but there are plenty of human employees restocking shelves, checking ID for wines, and working security.

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.
