Grocery shopping...no lines, no check out...say what?!



  • Amazon is taking grocery shopping to a whole new level:

  • This is probably partially in response to the rediculous minimum wage in Seattle.



  • I would actually go shopping again if I could do that. What a great idea. Amazon is one of the few companies with the capital and the infrastructure to pull it off too. Billions of dollars to be made there.



  • yes...but why load the kids in the car, drive to town, get the kids out of the car, deal with people, and go home again when I can order things on amazon prime and just wait for the brown truck?

    My wife does most of our shopping and most things I want I get online...but this would still be nice for the few times I do go to the store.

    I would much rather have this at lowes than a walmart type store...but i guess that is because I shop at lowes more and their lines are horribly long sometimes.



  • In select cities they have Prime Now...buy groceries and have them delivered

    Agreed.

    That is really cool....but if I ever live in a large enough city to qualify for prime now then something has gone horribly wrong in my life. :)



  • @dddoo7 I agree! :) However it's helpful should you be visiting one of those places and want food delivered. One place to do it all it seems now.
