Starbucks and Amazon have introduced the companies’ first joint store, Starbucks Pickup with Amazon Go, located in New York City at 59th Street between Park and Lexington Avenues. The store, anticipated earlier this month, utilizes the order ahead feature in the Starbucks app and Amazon Go’s Just Walk Out technology to create an easy checkout experience, alongside a modernized lounge that features individual workspaces and expanded tables with power outlets and USB ports, according to a press release.

The new store offers the full Starbucks menu and a curated assortment of food and beverages in the Amazon Go market, including fresh-prepared salads, sandwiches, bakery items and snack options.

The companies plan to open to additional stores in 2022, with the next location planned for The New York Times Building located at 40th Street & 8th Avenue in New York City next year.
