business news in context, analysis with attitude

Bloomberg reports that Amazon is considering the opening of Amazon Go checkout-free stores “in London and across southern England.”

Amazon has not commented on the report, but the story says that Amazon has “selected a real estate agent” helping it look for appropriate space in London, as well as in “counties including Surrey, Kent, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Essex and Middlesex.”
KC's View:
There is a big difference between “building” and “considering building.” Frankly, I’d be surprised if Amazon weren’t “considering building” Go stores in a lot of places.

If the Amazon Go stores are as successful as they appear to be, we’re going to see the technology in a lot of places.
