Cashier-less store coming to IL

An Amazon spokesman later confirmed to Seattle Times that the company plans to open Amazon Go stores in both locations, but did not specify when exactly.

Amazon plans to open cashierless stores in Chicago and San Francisco, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Amazon Go is headed for Chicago and San Francisco.

Amazon is also obtaining building permits in the two cities, though there hasn't been any confirmation regarding the store's opening dates or specific locations. That store opened to the public in January. The expansion was mentioned earlier this year, with a total of six new stores set to arrive this year.

Vodafone's Colao to step down
Vodafone Group CEO Vittorio Colao is to step down from the company following a decade in charge of the United Kingdom operator. He joined Vodafone in 2001 as UK finance director, before serving stints as UK chief commercial officer and UK chief executive.

Customers, who need to have Amazon's Go smartphone app, swipe their phone on the way into the store. No checkout is required; people are charged for the items they take shortly after leaving the store. After that, Amazon's system uses cameras and other sensors to track shoppers and identify what they take off shelves.

Staff won't include cashiers, but plenty of human employees will be needed to restock shelves, check ID for wine and work as extra security.

Four months after opening its first Amazon Go cashierless convenience store in its hometown of Seattle, the retailer is coming to San Francisco and Chicago. It bought grocer Whole Foods past year for $13.7billion, which gave it 470 stores, and has opened more than a dozen bookstores.
