Store of the future: Amazon Go cashier-less convenience store, now open for public


Photos: Here’s what the new Amazon Go cashier-less convenience store looks like. It’s the store of the future. 

Amazon Go was supposed to be a cashier-less, checkout line-free store to help get people in and out faster — a convenience store of the future. But while Amazon employees have been able to use the store for the past year or so, it had failed to open the public. Until now.

We recently got a look at the store, which is based at the bottom of Amazon’s main office tower in Seattle, before it opens to the public on Monday, January 22. Let’s take a look.

Amazon Go has food for all day parts: breakfast, lunch and dinner. One dinner option is meal kits that are exclusive to Amazon.

While the Amazon Go store is cashier-less, there will be a worker checking IDs in the wine and beer section. So don’t get any ideas.

See those black squares on the ceiling? Those are cameras and they are all over the store.

So a reminder if you live in Seattle (or feel like going), the cashier-less Amazon Go store opens to the public on Monday, January 22.
