Amazon debuted its first Amazon Go location at its headquarters in Seattle in December 2016; it opened to the public in January of this year.

Amazon, which opened a cashier-less store in Seattle this year, plans more locations in Chicago and San Francisco.

The San Francisco Chronicle recently reported that Amazon is eying an Amazon Go location in SF's Union Square neighborhood.

Amazon Go's cashierless convenience stores sound like they belong in a sci-fi movie, but they could be coming to a city near you.

Amazon says it will bring a cashier-less store to IL.

Shoppers enter the stores by scanning a smartphone app.

Right now the only Amazon Go location is in Seattle.

Amazon says expansion of this project means stores in Chicago and San Francisco.

Amazon is hiring - and while that news isn't particularly unusual, some very detailed job listings from the company may have given away the online retail giant's future plans.

Amazon Go is part of a broader push by Amazon into physical retail, including its acquisition of Whole Foods, its Amazon Books stores, and AmazonFresh Pickup locations.
