The winds of change for brick-and-mortar retail continues to blow, as Amazon Go makes its way to the Windy City.
E-commerce giant Amazon Inc. opened the doors to its fourth cashierless concept, Amazon Go, in Chicago on Sept. 17. Located at 113 S. Franklin St., it is the company’s first Amazon Go outside of its hometown of Seattle, and sits on the first floor of the complex where Amazon’s Chicago’s office is located.
Chicago’s Amazon Go offers a product mix of pre-made sandwiches, salads and snacks, in addition to traditional convenience store fare. Some items are prepared by Amazon off site and by local companies like Fairgrounds, Farmer’s Fridge and I Love Sweets and delivered daily.
