Guest: Brent Franson, CEO of Euclid Analytics Now that Amazon has gotten us all hooked on the online, two-day delivery shopping experience, it’s going old-school with a small bricks-and-mortar store in Seattle. But there’s a technical twist, of course. AmazonGo is a convenience store stocked with perishable items. You load an app on your phone and then you walk into the store, pick up what you want and walk out. No waiting in lines, no checkout counters, no swiping a credit card. Just grab and go, and the total is charged to your Amazon account. Right now the AmazonGo store in Seattle is only open to Amazon employees, but the company says it’ll open to the public in the coming months.
