From drones and one-hour delivery services to the innovative Dash button, Amazon continues to consider ways that the shopping process can be simplified, especially as the giant web retailer is now mulling over implementing a drive-thru grocery store concept in California.

The idea is that consumers would be able to order groceries online and then schedule a time to pick them up from the Sunnyvale facility. Although "drive-thru" may seem to imply that a car should be involved, consumers would also have the chance to arrive by bike or by foot to pick up item orders that have been placed.

For now, the idea is still in the concept stages, but it has the potential to change the way many American customers run their errands in the same way that its Click-and-Collect Stations have, but on a much larger scale.
