After the announcement of the first connected Amazon Go convenience store in Seattle, the massive online retailer has unveiled that it will be pursuing Amazon Go India locations in the coming months. The brick-and-mortar stores feature a fully connected experience, allowing consumers to simply take products off the shelves and walk out, getting charged to their Amazon accounts digitally.

Though the first Amazon Go location is near Amazon's headquarters in Seattle, the company has not announced any other locations stateside. The Amazon Go India stores, of which several are planned to open in the next year or so, would thus be an impressive feat for the country.

The Amazon Go India stores are expected to sell groceries and food products grown locally (as opposed to the more general packaged goods in the Seattle location,) helping to fuel India's agricultural economy.
