Hi everyone, I'm Lexy Savvides, and I'm in the middle of San Francisco's financial district standing right outside Amazon Go, the company's.
Company's first cashierless store in this city, although it is store number six across the US, with other ones in Chicago and Seattle.
So this concept is all about cameras and sensors tracking what you're buying.
So essentially, all you do when you walk in the store is scan the app, you pick out what you want, and then you just walk straight out and it's charged automatically.
So I'm gonna try it out, you're gonna come with With me I have the app already loaded on my phone.
So let's go inside and you are gonna go on a bit of a shopping spree.
I think it's gonna be pretty fun.
So this is my first time inside an Amazon Go Store, so I don't really know whats gonna be here.
I think it's gonna be, I can see like, candies, chocolates There are a couple of mugs, cliff bars, gum, let's grab some chocolate chips.
Okay, so I'm going to grab some off the shelf and it's going to keep an eye on what I'm actually picking up and so it's going to add it to my cart, and then if I put it back, it's going to take it out of my cart It's like magic.
So I think I want the chocolate chips, why not.
There's a lot to choose from in here.
And there are a couple of, I've noticed, a couple of local vendors that are just from San Francisco, like there's Munchery.
And then over here there are stuff from Dosa.
So these are all just like San Francisco local brands that you're probably not gonna get anywhere else.
So now I have everything I need, I have breakfast, lunch and really sugar filled dinner.
I'm gonna look straight-out with these and it's gonna send me an invoice afterwards.
Kinda of wait, I don't have to talk to anyone, I don't have to scan my credit card, I'm just gonna leave.
So I just left the store, and now I'm gonna go into the app and it gives me an invoice of everything that I bought, yeah I'm a little bit crazy let's be honest, I bought some stuff.
But my grand total down here, my invoice and my card has been charged and that's it, I spent Ten minutes and 13 seconds in the store.
I think I'm gonna go back in and check it out even more, cuz there's lots of stuff in there.
This is a big store.
So that was Amazon Go's shopping experience.
