MILL CREEK, Wash. — A new Amazon Go cashierless store format that opened on April 26 in Mill Creek, Wash., includes a made-to-order kitchen and sells a wider selection of grab-and-go food and beverage items than previous Amazon Go locations, including more beers and wines and everyday essentials.
The store also sells specialty beverages and self-serve Pinkberry frozen yogurt with a variety of toppings. This is the first time Pinkberry is available in the state of Washington, Amazon said. Specialty beverages include Starbucks coffee and espresso and on-tap beverages including RISE nitro cold brew coffee, Health-Ade kombuchas and ICEE slushies.
This new suburban format features the same "just walk out" technology and shopping experience as traditional Amazon Go stores, the company said. When shoppers are ready to leave, they walk out without waiting in a line or checking out.
The store is about 3,250 square feet in the front of house and 6,150 square feet overall.
Local vendors featured in the store include Alki Bakery, Macrina Bakery, Sri Bella, Reuben’s Brews Black Raven Brewing, Aslan, Charles Smith and Gilbert Cellars. The store offers packageless returns and, free for customers, two standard Level 2 Volta electric vehicle (EV) charging stations.
To help celebrate the opening, the location is offering customers $6 made-to-order sandwiches and wraps and $3 made-to-order breakfast sandwiches and avocado toast for a limited time.
Seattle-based Amazon operates 26 Amazon Go stores around the country.
