Amazon Go is expanding nationally
Amazon is expanding its Amazon Go stores to San Francisco and Chicago.
The company has posted job listings for store managers in the cities on its own site, which were first noticed by the Seattle Times.
Amazon confirmed its plans for the two cities in a statement. Earlier reports from Curbed and the San Francisco Chronicle found clues that Amazon was eying retail space in the two cities.
Currently there is only one Amazon Go store. The Seattle location uses a collection of cameras and sensors to track customers and inventory as they move around. Shoppers need to open the Amazon Go app to enter, and any products they take from the store are automatically charged to their account when they leave.
There are no cashiers but there are plenty of human employees restocking shelves, checking ID for wines, and working security.
