Amazon Go To Open Its First Store In Early 2017

December 5, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
If you prefer to shop in-store for your groceries but hate waiting in line at the checkout, then maybe Amazon Go is for you. You check in with the Amazon app as you enter the shop, choose what you want and add it to your bag, and then walk out. Using what Amazon is calling “Just Walk Out” technology that it says you might see in driver-less cars, the app knows what you’ve selected and will bill your Amazon account for the goods. The first Amazon Go store, at 2131 7th Ave, Seattle, WA, is scheduled to open early next year, although it’s currently open to Amazon employees in its Beta form. It’s not yet clear if Amazon plans to roll this out to other retailers.
