retail news in context, analysis with attitude

•  Amazon said this morning that it "will open its second Amazon Go store in the LA area in Torrance, CA and are excited to confirm a third Amazon Go store in the area coming soon to Woodland Hills, CA. Additionally, we’re sharing the news that Amazon Go is seeking Zero Carbon Certification with the International Living Future Institute (ILFI) for all of the Amazon Go stores in the LA area. This includes the two new stores mentioned above as well as the Amazon Go store that recently opened in Whittier, CA (in September 2022)."

The Torrance store, like the Whittier store recently covered here on MNB (pictured below), will feature a "Made-to-Order kitchen which offers freshly prepared meals, including breakfast, sandwiches, salads and wraps for customers to choose from or customize – available all day and at prices they can feel good about.  The Made-to-Order kitchen offers breakfast bowls, sandwiches and burritos, hot and cold deli sandwiches, salads, and wraps."
