Cashier-less store coming to IL

Amazon is looking for store managers to head Amazon Go stores in both cities, according to recent job listings the retailer posted on its website.

Amazon Go, Amazon's cashierless convenience store, is coming to San Francisco and Chicago.

The company first opened "Amazon Go" in Seattle. In February, real-estate tracker Curbed took note of a building permit for construction of a 625-square-foot Amazon store in Chicago's Loop district.

At the time only Seattle and Los Angeles were confirmed, but it looks like the expansion will stretch beyond those cities. And on Sunday, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that Amazon planned to open a store near the city's Union Square, with a formal announcement expected within weeks. (NASDAQ:AMZN) likes what it sees from its futuristic cashierless store concept. Once inside the store, customers can grab what they need and just walk out. When they arrive, they use the app to enter the store, "then feel free to put your phone away - you don't need it to shop. No lines, no checkout", according to the company.

After shoppers check in by scanning their unique QR code, overhead cameras work with weight sensors in the shelves to precisely track which items they pick up and take with them.

There are no cashiers but there are plenty of human employees restocking shelves, checking ID for wines, and working security. In addition to its own selection of food available for purchase online and the Amazon Fresh grocery delivery service, Amazon owns Whole Foods.
