Amazon opens a mini version of its Go store in Seattle
Amazon recently announced launch of a new version of its cashier-less Go store which is smaller than its regular one. The company is referring to it as a small format Go store, and it’s a freestanding construction with its own enclosed ceiling, which is where it places a majority of the cameras and sensors used to track shoppers and determine when an item has been taken off the shelf.
Amazon says this new version is located on the sixth floor of the Macy’s building at 300 Pine Street in downtown Seattle, measures about 450 square feet and serves mainly pre-made breakfast, lunch, and dinner items, as well as beverages and snacks.
Last week Reuters reported that Amazon had discussions with both the Los Angeles International Airport and the San Jose International Airport over the summer to bring Go stores to terminals.
