Amazon may add more convenience stores


SEATTLE — Amazon may be expanding Amazon Go, the company’s brick-and-mortar convenience store concept, to as many as 3,000 new locations in the U.S. by 2021, according to Bloomberg. Sources close to the topic told Bloomberg that CEO Jeff Bezos “sees eliminating meal-time logjams in busy cities as the best way for Amazon to reinvent the brick-and-mortar shopping experience, where most spending still occurs.” The company opened its first Amazon Go location in Seattle in 2016, and since then has announced two additional sites in Seattle and one in Chicago.
