Amazon Expands Cashierless Go Format to New York
NEW YORK CITY, NY - There’s nothing you can’t do in New York—well, except maybe shop at a cashierless grocery store, but even that’s about to change as Amazon reportedly makes plans to expand its Go stores into New York City. News source The Information broke the news last week after finding online job listings for a store manager, an assistant store manager, a learning and development manager, and a training lead associate for a New York-based Amazon Go store.
While no additional information has been released yet by Amazon, it’s safe to assume the New York stores will offer perishable items, ready-made salads, meals kits, Whole Foods goods, snacks, and more like the Seattle-based Go stores.
Since opening its first Amazon Go location in Seattle, Amazon has also been rumored to be eyeing Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago as other possible cities to expand its brick-and-mortar network.
Will Amazon Go eventually pop up in neighborhoods across the country and become America’s grocery go-to? AndNowUKnow will continue to report on the latest.
