Cashier-free Amazon Go stores are coming to Chicago and San Francisco

Shoppers scan in to enter and shop at Amazon Go in Seattle

Amazon is planning to open two more cashier-less Amazon Go grocery stores in Chicago and San Francisco. The retailer confirmed the news after recently putting up an ad seeking for store managers for outlets in both cities. It is recently reported that Amazon had its eye on an Amazon Go location in San Francisco's Union Square neighborhood.

Ever since the opening of the first Amazon Go store this past January, there have been hints from executives that expansion is a given.

In addition to these two new locations, there are allegedly still a few more Amazon Go stores waiting to be built.

However, the Finn is anxious that Mercedes' apparent resurgence at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya may prove short-lived. It's the jewel in F1's crown, and Ferrari versus Mercedes versus Red Bull should be well and truly on.

The company confirmed Monday that Amazon Go stores would open in the two cities, but didn't say when, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. There's no word yet on when the new locations may open, but it has previously been reported that Amazon wants to open six new Go locations this year. The company had already identified potential locations in Los Angeles and Seattle.

Real-estate tracker Curbed in February spotted a building permit for construction of a 625-square-foot "Amazon store" in Chicago's Loop district. However, this issue has largely been eliminated just a few weeks after the grand opening of the original Amazon Go store.

The store features a simple setup, where a customer scans a smartphone app to start shopping, then can take things off the shelves and just walk out.
