retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Yesterday, as we reported here yesterday, Amazon opened its fourth Amazon Go checkout-free store - in Chicago, making it the first one outside Seattle.

The store is about 2,000 square feet in size, and features the same technological advances - what it calls “Just Walk Out technology” - that made the Seattle stores such a draw for consumers and retailing experts alike.

The Chicago Amazon Go seems to be the same kind of draw … witness the picture at left that was provided by an MNB user, taken at the South Franklin Street address, just a block or so from Willis Tower, in the Loop.

That’s my idea of an Eye-Opener.
