Cashierless Amazon stores coming to Chicago

Cashierless Amazon stores coming to Chicago

There were hints that Amazon Go locations were heading to San Francisco and Chicago, according to the news report. In response, Amazon's vice president said this move "forces us to question our growth here".

A downtown San Francisco location is believed to be the site of the future store, while Chicago has been anticipating a physical Amazon presence for months.

Amazon is looking for store managers to head Amazon Go stores in both cities, according to recent job listings the retailer posted on its website. 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.


Customers, who need to have Amazon's Go smartphone app, swipe their phone on the way into the store. Amazon's technology, including overhead cameras, keeps track of what they buy and charges customers after they leave.

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.

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.
