Amazon is expanding its Go convenience store to two more locations


Amazon is opening additional Amazon Go locations in Chicago and San Francisco as the company expands its cashier-less grocery store concept across the nation. The retailer confirmed the news after recently putting up an ad seeking for store managers for outlets in both cities.

Amazon Go is headed for Chicago and San Francisco.

The company first opened "Amazon Go" in Seattle.

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

Opening more stores is yet another sign that Amazon is serious about expanding its physical presence.

In February, real estate tracker Curbed Chicago also pointed out that Amazon had acquired a building permit for a location in downtown Chicago. There's no word yet on when the new locations may open, but it has previously been reported that Amazon wants to open six new Go locations this year. That store opened to the public in January.

At the time only Seattle and Los Angeles were confirmed, but it looks like the expansion will stretch beyond those cities.

Customers, who need to have Amazon's Go smartphone app, swipe their phone on the way into the store. Once inside, they can take soda, salads or anything else off its shelves and just walk out. No checkout is required; people are charged for the items they take shortly after leaving the store.
