Amazon Opens Amazon Go In Chicago
Chicago is the second city to have an Amazon Go store in countrywide rollout
Curious to see what the future of grocery shopping might look like? Well, then you’ll have to take a trip to Chicago (or to Seattle if you’re on the west coast) to see Amazon’s new Amazon Go store, which doesn’t have any cashiers. Similar to San Francisco’s Zippin, Amazon Go requires an app to access the building and then you’re charged with whatever items you pick up once you leave the market, thanks to a variety of high tech sensors and cameras.
Besides the other people shopping at the supermarket, you won’t actually ever have to interact with another human in order to get your food. The Chicago checkout-free grocery store is located at 113 S. Franklin Street, is open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Monday to Friday, and is the fourth store Amazon has opened in its countrywide rollout.
Next time you’re looking to grab a snack and happen to be in the windy city, you might as well stop by the Amazon Go store to see how it all works. We can’t wait until Amazon brings one to New York.
