Amazon Go stores will start accepting cash in the wake of controversy over whether cashless stores are “elitist”:
“In an internal all-hands meeting last month, Steve Kessel, Amazon’s senior vice president of physical stores, told employees that the company plans ‘additional payment mechanisms’ at its Go stores. Kessel was responding to a question about how Amazon plans to address ‘discrimination and elitism’ at the cashierless stores, which charge purchases using an app connected to a bank or credit card.”
P.S. Retail innovations are always a risk and Amazon Go may need some fine-tuning. Meanwhile, suppliers need to focus on keeping costs down and making sure their products are on store shelves. Our classes can help you, and your team, achieve these goals. Check out our catalog today.
