Amazon Fresh, the new grocery store from Amazon where you just “walk out” with you shopping cart is coming to 3179 N. Clark Street.
The former Fifth Third Bank’s site will include a smaller version of the branch, with several more retail spaces available.
Planned by Hubbard Street Group, the new construction will produce a two-story development rising 48 feet. The building will include approximately 59,000 square feet of new retail or commercial space. Over 20,000 square feet of that will be located on the ground floor with an approximate frontage of 295 feet along W. Belmont Avenue.
The building will feature underground parking for tenants and visitors. The garage will be accessed off of N. Clark Street, with loading accessed off of N. Halsted Street.
Amazon Fresh: What’s ‘Just Walk Out’ shopping like?
“To the uninitiated, it’ll probably feel a bit like shoplifting.
I mean, whoever heard of walking into a grocery store, filling a cart full of food and leaving without paying a cashier or even swiping a credit or debit card through a kiosk on your way out?
That’s the “Just Walk Out” technology consumers will find at the new Amazon Fresh store in Cerritos. The market at 11340 South St. opened to the public on Thursday, Nov. 18, but I got a sneak peek Wednesday.
You can enter the store one of three ways — by scanning the QR code on your Amazon app, by hovering your palm over the reader, or by inserting a credit or debit card into the reader that’s linked to your Amazon account.
