Amazon plans to open 3 000 Go stores cashier-less till 2021

Experts have already called it an aggressive policy of implementing some of Amazon’s boldest ideas into everyday life. During the last several years, Amazon has shown that they are ready for a tough fight to keep their place under the sun.

According to the report published yesterday by Bloomberg, there will be 3,000 cashier-less Amazon Go stores by 2021.

It is another aggressive move by Amazon since they have purchased Whole Foods two years ago. Analysts believe that this move will help Amazon to show themselves as one of the most successful offline businesses. Amazon Go has the potential to compete with CVS, Kroger and even 7-Eleven. And let’s not forget about retail giants Target and Walmart.

Amazon’s first automatic store appeared in the 2016 year in Seattle. It was very convenient for people who did not want to contact employees or kiosks and could just go through sensors and automatic software.

Since that year, Amazon has continued to study consumer demand, learned new tricks and expanded its line of cashier-less shops.

Only a month ago, Amazon opened another Go store, their second one. It is situated in Seattle as well. A week ago the third store went online in Chicago. By the end of 2018 and in 2019, Amazon plans to open more stores in San Francisco and Chicago.

Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon, says he imagines these stores not only expanding in numbers but increasing the categories of products they sell.
