Amazon Go stores are coming to Chicago and San Francisco

  • Cashier-less store coming to Illinois

In addition to these two new locations, there are allegedly still a few more Amazon Go stores waiting to be built.

The retailer, which opened its first cashierless store concept to the public in Seattle in January, is seeking store managers in both cities, according to recent job postings on Amazon's website. Amazon now has job listings for store manager positions in both San Francisco and Chicago.

Amazon has confirmed that Amazon Go stores would open in Chicago and San Francisco, but didn't specify when.

Amazon Go is headed for Chicago and San Francisco.

In February, real estate tracker Curbed Chicago also pointed out that Amazon had acquired a building permit for a location in downtown Chicago. The expansion was mentioned earlier this year, with a total of six new stores set to arrive this year.

The actual Amazon Go store is extremely tech-heavy, was expensive to build and can only sell a narrow range of specially-selected items - nowhere near the 50,000 or so items a typical supermarket stocks.

For taking up the advantage of shopping in the Seattle store, customers need to first download the Amazon Go app and link it to a payment method. Once inside, they can take soda, salads or anything else off its shelves and just walk out. Overhead cameras keep track of what people buy before their payment method is charged.

Amazon Go's grab-and-go experience allows consumers to quickly pick up all the required items on their grocery list and leave the store without the hassle of checkout lines or counters.

There are no cashiers but there are plenty of human employees restocking shelves, checking ID for wines, and working security.
