Amazon is looking to open more of its cashier-less Go stores across the United States and it looks like San Francisco and Chicago will be among the next cities to get them, according to new task postings in those cities.
In response to the postings, discovered by The Seattle Times, an Amazon spokesperson confirmed that stores were being planned for both of the cities, though they didn’t specify what day looked like.
There aren’t many details beyond members of the general task listings, but they do list a couple of management positions around these two sites.
Earlier this week, the SF Chronicle reported that an Amazon Go store could be coming to SF’s heavily trafficked Union Square downtown area. Meanwhile, the company has a permit for what would be a much smaller 635 -square-foot” Amazon store” inside Chicago’s Loop area.
Amazon’s Go store is designed with the idea of get customers in and out of a convenient store-like grocery without ever having to go through the check-out process. The store relies heavily on cameras tracking customers and ensure what they select while charging them directly through an Amazon Go app. The company’s” store of the future” is currently only in Seattle and appears to be a wholly separate initiative from Whole Foods, which Amazon acquired last year.
