Amazon looks to be on a spree of opening convenience stores to tap the retail market. In a new move, Amazon has come up with its third Amazon Go convenience store in Seattle on September 5. The store is third in the Seattle and has opened only after a couple of days of the second store.
With its unit cover of 2,100 square feet, the new Amazon Go convenience store is reported to be the largest as of now. The third store is located at Boren Avenue North and Thomas Street. The first store at the Blanchard, which opened in January covers 1,800 square feet, while the second one is in 1,450 square feet, which also makes it the smallest Amazon Go convenience store.
Amazon Go is a kind of store with no checkout required. It’s an advanced shopping technology that cut short the waiting time people usually spend in queues. The user requires the Amazon Go app to enter the store, buy the products, and move out. The Amazon Go app is available on the Apple App Store, Google Play, and Amazon Appstore.
The technology that has made such a kind of shopping a reality includes computer vision, sensor fusion, and deep learning. The “Just Walk Out Technology” from the Amazon automatically detects when products are taken by the customer or returned to the shelves and keeps track of all the items in a virtual cart. After your shopping, the e-commerce giant will send you a receipt and charge your Amazon account.
The store specializes in ready-to-eat breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, bread, milk, and locally made chocolates.
Lately, the “checkout-free” platforms have sparked quite a lot of interest in the big-box retailers like Walmart, which is reportedly collaborating with Microsoft to design its own stores with a similar technology that is being used by the Amazon.
