business news in context, analysis with attitude

•  Amazon has begun hiring for its first Amazon Fresh stores to open in New York (in Oceanside) and New Jersey (in Paramus), saying that it is looking to fill hundreds of jobs - though it is not specific about when it plans to open the stores or precisely how many people will be hired for what roles.

The stores will feature the Just-Walk-Out checkout-free technology that Amazon pioneered with its Amazon Go stores;  there currently are 14 Amazon Fresh stores featuring that technology.
