Amazon Go technology could come to Whole Foods in 2021

  • Amazon is reportedly aiming to bring its autonomous checkout technology to Whole Foods stores in 2021.
  • This would give the ecommerce giant the opportunity to showcase its offerings and recruit merchants to license its tech.

The ecommerce titan plans to start rolling out the technology it uses at its Amazon Go stores to Whole Foods locations in Q2 2021, according to the New York Post. Bringing the technology, which tracks shoppers and products so consumers can grab their items and leave without stopping to physically check out, to Whole Foods’ over 500 locations would be a major accomplishment for Amazon because it’d prove that it can retrofit existing stores with its technology.

Amazon Go’s cashierless tech may come to Whole Foods as soon as next year

Amazon may be looking to bring the cashierless tech found at its Go convenience stores to Whole Foods supermarkets as early as next year, the New York Post reports.

The New York Post’s source claims the rollout of the new technology into Whole Foods is one of two final projects that Jeff Wilke, CEO of Amazon’s worldwide consumer division, is focusing on before he retires early next year.
