Cashier-less store coming to Illinois

Cashier-less store coming to Illinois

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

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

Today the word comes down that Amazon Go stores are set to arrive in Chicago and San Francisco, and the company is looking for store managers in both locations. It is recently reported that Amazon had its eye on an Amazon Go location in San Francisco's Union Square neighborhood.

The retailer has been billing it as the first cashierless convenience store in the world.


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

Real-estate tracker Curbed in February spotted a building permit for construction of a 625-square-foot "Amazon store" in Chicago's Loop district.

Amazon executives had hinted during the January opening of the pilot store on the company's Seattle headquarters campus that they planned to expand, but the company had been silent on its road map.

Amazon Go is the online retail pioneer's attempt to reinvent the physical store with the same mindset that brought one-click shopping to the internet. No checkout is required; people are charged for the items they take shortly after leaving the store. Each store will also have staff members who will be there to make sure the shelves are restocked and assist new customers who are hesitant about how it all works.
