Amazon Go Expands to Chicago and San Francisco

Amazon plans to open cashierless stores in Chicago and San Francisco, according to the Chicago Tribune. That news comes from the fact that the internet retail giant has listed Amazon Go store manager positions for Chicago and San Fransisco on its jobs site.

When Amazon opened its cashier-less Amazon Go store in Seattle this January, the world stopped and stared. In response, Amazon's vice president said this move "forces us to question our growth here". In San Francisco, an Amazon Go store could be placed near Union Square, although the exact location is expected to be revealed in the coming weeks due to necessary building permits.

A downtown San Francisco location is believed to be the site of the future store, while Chicago has been anticipating a physical Amazon presence for months.

In order to shop at Amazon Go, customers need an Amazon account, the free Amazon Go mobile app and a recent-generation iPhone or Android.

Reports hint at other location possibilities.

Customers simply have to download the Amazon Go app and scan a unique barcode that automatically identifies them when they walk into a store. After that, Amazon's system uses cameras and other sensors to track shoppers and identify what they take off shelves. As many as six stores could open this year, according to Recode.
