Amazon announced that it will open a low-cost grocery store in 2020. The store will be located in a Los Angeles suburb, named Woodland Hills. Amazon's Grocery store will be a 35,00 square-foot facility that will use a conventional check out system. The location will be the company's first-ever grocery store, however, Amazon has not yet named the store.
The company will also look to hire employees for its low-cost grocery store. Specifically, Amazon will hire people to handle the store's check out, as well as people to stock shelves and run a food counter.
Amazon has previously ventured into brick and mortar locations, with Amazon Books, as well as Amazon 4-Star. Additionally, the company has experience in selling produce items through its Amazon Fresh service. Due to its previous experience, Amazon is well-positioned to launch its brick and mortar grocery store.
