Recode reported earlier this year that Amazon plans to open as many as six additional Amazon Go stores beyond the original Seattle location.

Amazon Go, Amazon's cashierless convenience store, is coming to San Francisco and Chicago.

An Amazon spokesperson confirmed with GeekWire that the company is opening Amazon Go locations in Chicago and San Francisco, but did not provide a timetable.

And on Sunday, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that Amazon planned to open a store near the city's Union Square, with a formal announcement expected within weeks.

In February, real estate tracker Curbed Chicago also pointed out that Amazon had acquired a building permit for a location in downtown Chicago.

Gap says sorry for T-shirts with "incorrect map" of China
In the statement sent to the Global Times , Gap said the T-shirt has been pulled off shelves in the Chinese market and destroyed. Gap is the latest in a string of foreign firms to face a backlash for not adhering to China's territorial claims.

At the time only Seattle and Los Angeles were confirmed, but it looks like the expansion will stretch beyond those cities.

The store features a simple setup, where a customer scans a smartphone app to start shopping, then can take things off the shelves and just walk out. Amazon Go's systems automatically debit their accounts for the items they take, sending the receipt to the app.

Amazon Go's grab-and-go experience allows consumers to quickly pick up all the required items on their grocery list and leave the store without the hassle of checkout lines or counters.

Staff won't include cashiers, but plenty of human employees will be needed to restock shelves, check ID for wine and work as extra security.
