(NEW YORK, NY) — Amazon plans to open its cashierless checkout-free Go store in New York City.
The new store will be located in Manhattan’s Battery Park City neighborhood, across the street from the World Trade Center.
A checkout-free Go store in NYC would be the second retail store Amazon has opened in the city in two months. The first store, Amazon 4-star, was opened in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood in late September and features various items from the Amazon site that have been rated four stars or higher.

Amazon has finally opened its nearly cashier-free stores to the public.
As of right now, there are three Amazon Go stores in Seattle, two in Chicago, and one in San Francisco. According to reports, Amazon is looking to open 3,000 Amazon Go stores by 2021 with more than 50 established by 2019.
Amazon Go stores are small convenience stores that sell ready-made lunches, drinks, snacks, frozen dinners, and a few groceries. Customers will need to use their Amazon Go app to enter the store and items will be charged to their Amazon account automatically when they leave.
Amazon continues to expand its “Just Walk Out” technology which will begin to influence the way businesses use and implement the cashierless concept.
