Amazon Go Expands to Chicago and San Francisco

The company is expanding its experimental Amazon Go store to the two U.S. cities, but did not say when they would open.

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. 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.

Talking about Amazon Go, it's a revolutionary store that holds nearly everything. And on Sunday, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that Amazon planned to open a store near the city's Union Square, with a formal announcement expected within weeks. 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. Aside from Seattle, Los Angeles is also a possible location of another cashierless store.

Shoppers enter the stores by scanning a smartphone app.

There is now only one Amazon Go store located in Seattle. "No lines, no checkout", according to the company.

The technology, which Amazon refers to as "Just Walk Out Technology", uses cameras, sensors, and artificial intelligence to automatically detect when products are taken from or returned to the shelves.

Staff won't include cashiers, but plenty of human employees will be needed to restock shelves, check ID for wine and work as extra security. It bought grocer Whole Foods previous year for $13.7billion, which gave it 470 stores, and has opened more than a dozen bookstores.
