Amazon's store expansion is beyond flawless for introverts

Amazon may open 3,000 cashierless stores by 2021 - as survey reveals it's now third in online ads

According to a report, Amazon is considering opening 3,000 of its cashierless stores by 2021.

A report says that Amazon plans to open as many as 3,000 physical stores by 2021 - but without any cashiers.

Amazon also recently opened the first Amazon Go store outside of Seattle in Chicago. Since then, the company has opened two more Seattle sites and one in Chicago, and has confirmed plans for San Francisco and NY stores. Though not giving a timetable or location details, Amazon also has confirmed plans to open Amazon Go outlets in San Francisco and New York City. Food offerings include convenience-store mainstays like snacks and drinks along with ready-to-eat, to-go breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack options.

Sleek black cameras monitoring from above and weight sensors in the shelves help Amazon determine exactly what people take. At present, the two older locations have salads, sandwiches, snacks, and a small range of groceries; the newer ones don't offer groceries at present. Amazon has poured considerable resources into its grocery business in the past 15 months and bought the upmarket organic grocer Whole Foods for $13.7 billion last summer. Under the plan cited by Bloomberg, 10 Go stores would be up and running by the end of 2018, 50 in 2019, and up to 3,000 by 2021.

The three stores in Seattle have operated with minimal errors, the few of which have cost less than maintaining a staff of cashiers that would be getting paid the city's $15.45 corporate minimum wage.

Speculation of a widespread rollout of Amazon Go isn't the first time the company has been rumored to have plotted a massive expansion into brick-and-mortar stores. Amazon has committed to opening stores in NY and San Francisco.

You have to scan the Amazon Go app on your phone to enter the store.

In late 2016, stories spread that Amazon was planning to build 2,000 grocery stores. Should it be a convenience store with fresh food and groceries? Shoppers rate location and a lack of lines as the most important factors when shopping for convenience, he said. It would also change Amazon's business, putting more focus on its physical stores.

Driving Amazon Go's checkout-free shopping experience is Amazon's "Just Walk Out" technology.
