A Wall Street Journal report on Tuesday claims that Amazon is looking to expand its grocery business (Amazon Fresh) by introducing curbside pickup locations as well as full on convenience stores. This comes shortly after the online retailing giant rolled out a number of physical bookstore locations along the West Coast.
According to WSJ’s sources that are “people familiar with the matter,” the Amazon convenience stores will sell things like milk, meats, and other perishable items. Also throughout the store would be stations where consumers could use their smartphones or possibly touch screens at each station to order other products with “longer shelf lives” for same-day delivery.
