Amazon debuted its first Amazon Go location at its headquarters in Seattle in December 2016; it opened to the public in January of this year. 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. The company had already identified potential locations in Los Angeles and Seattle.

The retailer has been billing it as the first cashierless convenience store in the world. Up until now, the only Amazon Go store was in Seattle. Amazon's technology, including overhead cameras, keeps track of what they buy and charges customers after they leave. It featured what's known as "Just Walk Out" technology, which allows customers to take items off of the shelves and be charged for the items they leave the store with while bypassing any checkout procedures. "No lines, no checkout", according to the company.

Amazon Go is part of a broader push by Amazon into physical retail, including its acquisition of Whole Foods, its Amazon Books stores, and AmazonFresh Pickup locations. Each store will also have staff members who will be there to make sure the shelves are restocked and assist new customers who are hesitant about how it all works.
