An Amazon Go location recently debuted in Chicago -- the format's first location outside of Seattle
Amazon has taken a further step toward setting up its Amazon Go checkout-free convenience concept in London, Reuters has reported, citing a report from U.K. business-to-business intelligence brand The Grocer.
The Seattle-based ecommerce behemoth secured central London retail space for the concept, the news outlet noted. This development would make for the first Amazon Go location outside of the United States.
The number of sites secured is not known, Reuters said. This wouldn't be the first time Amazon sells food in the United Kingdom, however: It currently does so through its Amazon Fresh, Amazon Pantry and Prime Now delivery services.
In other Amazon news, the company this week pulled out of its plans to open one of two second-headquarters (HQ2) locations in New York, following local complaints. It will still move forward with its HQ2 location in Virginia, however.
