retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Amazon announced this morning that it has opened its third Amazon Go checkout-free store in Chicago, in the Ogilvie Transportation Center at 500 W Madison St. … about a half-mile from each of the other two Go stores operating in the city.

A fourth Amazon Go store is scheduled to open in Chicago in 2019, at 111 E Wacker Drive.

There are three Amazon Go stores currently operating in Seattle, and one in San Francisco, with another San Francisco location expected to be opened this winter.

I have to wonder what the next city will be to get an Amazon Go … I’d bet, in fairly short order, we’ll see them in New York, Washington, and Boston … it makes sense to put them in places with tons of walking traffic. Though it would be interesting to see how they’d fare if Amazon opened them in highway rest stops.
