The first Amazon Go store in New York City opened for business this week and is taking cash as well as offering a cashierless checkout customer experience.

The store is the 12th Amazon Go location the mega omnichannel retailer is operating around the U.S. Initially designed as a cashierless experience, a cash payment option is going to be available as the result of negative feedback and claims that cashless retail is discriminatory to the unbanked and those without a smartphone.

Amazon reportedly is aiming to have 3,000 Go stores operating within two years. (Retail Customer Experience)
