Amazon expected to open convenience stores
In a world where old-fashioned brick and mortar supermarkets are trying to establish online shopping services, internet retailing giant Amazon, is doing the opposite and opening its own real-life convenience stores in the US.
The move is not confirmed by the company itself yet but according to the Wall Street Journal, the stores will sell basic everyday items like milk, bread and meat. Other non-perishable items like peanut butter and cereal will be available for order mainly for same-day delivery either through the consumers’ phone or in-store touch screens.
For those who want an even more convenient experience, it is expected that Amazon will offer drive-thru like services where customers can buy their groceries online then simply drive up and have them brought to their car. A licence plate reader will likely be used to help make the whole process quick and seamless.
Amazon has been selling grocery items since 2007 through its AmazonFresh service that is today available in multiple US locations and in London.
