Amazon Go targets Chicago, San Francisco for new stores

A specific timeline for the IL store is unknown at this time.

Amazon, which opened a cashierless store in Seattle this year, plans more locations in Chicago and San Francisco. That news comes from the fact that the internet retail giant has listed Amazon Go store manager positions for Chicago and San Fransisco on its jobs site. The expansion was mentioned earlier this year, with a total of six new stores set to arrive this year. "Come join Amazon Go and help our customers get good food, fast!" the listing reads. 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.

Amazon began piloting the check-out free retail concept with its employees in Seattle in December 2016, as CSNews Online previously reported.

Customers simply have to download the Amazon Go app and scan a unique barcode that automatically identifies them when they walk into a store. Customers are billed after leaving the store using credit cards on file.

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.
