Does DFW deserve an Amazon Go?

Postby HerbIsHere » 14 May 2018 22:05

Ya know... The no cashier convenience store? Personally I think Downtown Dallas or somewhere in North Dallas they'd appreciate the store very much. But hbu?

Decided to make this after news of upcoming stores in San Fran and Chi-Town arose

I'd imagine the end goal is to have most/all stores will utilize this same technology, so it's more like a question of 'when' rather than 'if'.

With that said, I'm not really sure where it would make sense in DFW. Downtown Dallas still doesn't have a full-sized grocery store, and I'm guessing that's because the population just isn't quite there (although I'm sure we are very very close at this point). So, with that in mind, opening an unconventional type of store there seems a bit risky.

If it did come to Dallas, I could see it anchoring a new tower in West Village or Knox.

My guess is Legacy West. They've already got the jam-packed 3 story food court, a Tesla showroom, a Sprinkles cupcake machine, a Barnes and Noble Restaurant, a Tommy Bahama restaurant, this is the perfect complement to those!
