Amazon opened its first cashierless full grocery store in Seattle as it ramps up its position in the grocery sector
Amazon is opening its doors at a new Amazon Go location in Seattle on Tuesday.
The new 10,000-square-foot store will be run in the same way as its sister locations – offering a cashier-less shopping experience for its customers.
A representative for the company confirmed to Business Insider that the store will sell fresh produce, meat, seafood, bread, and ready-made meals among other things. It will also stock beer, wine, and spirits.
"We offer a mix of organic and conventional items from well-known brands, along with special finds and local favorites," a spokesperson said in a press release sent out early Tuesday.
Amazon opened its first Amazon Go store in 2018, two years after it made public its plans for a futuristic new store. It has since opened 24 other locations in Seattle, New York, Chicago, and San Francisco.
The retail giant is making significant strides in the grocery space and working hard to grow its reach beyond Whole Foods, which Amazon acquired in 2017.
