Amazon is bringing its first Go store to the Big Apple. Located in a prime area of real estate just across from the World Trade Center, Amazon’s second store in New York City will open its doors soon. The store won’t have cashiers and will be check-out free. Amazon hopes this will be the shopping way of the future.
The Go store is located in Manhattan’s Battery Park City neighborhood. The company already has another store in the city – Amazon 4-star. This shop, in SoHo, opened in late September this year and sells items from Amazon’s online store that have a rating of four or more stars.
Amazon has three brick and mortar stores in the United States — one in San Francisco and two in Chicago. Apparently, the company goal is to have 50 stores up and running by 2019 and 3,000 stores by 2021. Go stores are akin to convenience stores in that they sell snacks, drinks, ready-made meals, frozen dinners and some groceries. Customers need to have the Amazon Go app before they can even enter the facilities. They will pay for what they take through their Amazon account.
Real estate is steadily moving into the future as can be seen by these new-concept Amazon stores popping up in the country. New York lawyers keep up with the legalities that accompany these new ventures, and any entrepreneur looking to journey into this world would be able to find answers to any questions pertaining to contractual transactions from an experienced attorney. A lawyer can offer advice on any potential business or personal real estate deals whether a client is a purchaser or a vendor.
