Amazon is evaluating the opening of 3,000 cashier-less stores
within the next 3 years.
The choice of the e-commerce giant to position itself also on the retail market would threaten food stores and fast food chains in the United States, speeding up, in a very short time, the sale of items for its customers.
The goal was announced a few days after the opening of the new headquarters in Chicago, the third headquarters after those of Amazon Go in Seattle. The automated shops have a very clear and catchy slogan: "No lines, no cashiers, no registers". Customers will be able to use the Amazon Go app
while choosing items of interest from the shopping lanes, with around 2,000 square feet.
Bloomberg.com reports that the company plans to develop 50 stores in major metropolitan areas by 2019. Amazon has already proposed its next stores for San Francisco and New York
. The addition of 3,000 grocery stores would make Amazon Go one of the largest chains in the United States.
