    Amazon representatives confirmed Tuesday that the retail giant will be the operator of the nearly 43,000-square-foot grocery store opening in the former Babies R Us space in Schaumburg.

    Amazon said the new store will not be part of its checkout-free Amazon Go line but rather will feature a traditional checkout experience.

    The store's approval by the village last August included a special-use permit for a restaurant, allowing it to include an 862-square-foot seating area where customers can consume their purchases on-site.

    The shoplifting aspect of their mini-stores is a significant part of the appeal. As literally a "grab-and-go" experience as possible. Not sure what a conventional retail store adds to the mix, especially since their product selection isn't unique and, thus far, their prepared foods are a disappointment.

    Your Amazon smart grocery cart will let you skip the checkout line. And it’ll likely be in the Chicago area soon.
