Amazon Go is on the Move With More Cashierless Stores

2018 has been a record-breaking year for Amazon, and the tech giant is now the largest retailer in the United States by market capitalization.

On January 22nd, 2018, the first Amazon Go store opened to the public at 2131 7th Ave. in Seattle. Amazon Go stores facilitate Amazon’s mission to end grocery store check out lines. Founded in 2016, Amazon Go is a chain of stores that are expanding to meet the needs of busy consumers who are looking for a convenient, automated grocery option. At this store, you can find groceries, meal kits, prepared foods, and liquor available for purchase.

Wait. There’s more.

After Amazon announced the acquisition of online pharmacy Pillpack and Delivery Service Partners business for entrepreneurs in June 2018, a second Amazon Go location was opened in Downtown Seattle at the Madison Center on August 27th.

Do you think that’s enough cashier-less stores in one city within one year? Think again.

The third Amazon Go store opened at the Troy Block complex in South Lake Union in September 2018, becoming the largest Amazon Go location in Seattle.

Now Amazon Go expands to the Windy City!

The first Amazon Go store in Chicago debuted on September 17, 2018, at 113 S. Franklin Street. Less than a month later, a second Amazon Go location opened in Chicago on October 8th. Sources reported that a third store is coming soon at 500 W. Madison.
