Amazon is getting ready to open an Amazon Go store in New York, The Information reports. Job listings for a new Amazon Go location popped up Thursday night and the company confirmed to The Information that it has plans for a store in the New York area. Amazon already has three of its cashierless stores up and running in Seattle -- the third opened earlier this week -- and it has plans to expand to Chicago and San Francisco as well.

But Amazon is no longer the only player in the game. Standard Cognition opened its first location today in San Francisco and like Amazon Go, it lets customers shop and pay without having to go through a checkout line or scan their items. Microsoft reportedly has its own checkout-less shopping technology in the works as well, something that Walmart is said to have its eyes on.
