Amazon not planning 2,000 grocery stores

Amazon.com Inc. dismissed a recent report by The Wall Street Journal that suggested the online retailer planned to open 2,000 grocery stores, or set up 30,000-square-foot to 40,000-square-foot stores, the Journal reported Dec. 8, citing a company statement.

The company said it is "still learning."

The company recently opened an 1,800-square-foot brick-and-mortar grocery store in Seattle without lines and checkout counters. Amazon Go, which is now open for its Beta phase in Seattle for Amazon employees to shop at, gives shoppers a "Just Walk Out Shopping" experience.
