- Amazon has closed its Amazon Go location at 5th Avenue and Marion Street in Seattle, a spokesperson confirmed by email. The closure was first reported on Tuesday by GeekWire.
- The location opened in August 2018, and was the second store to open under Amazon’s frictionless c-store brand.
- So far, 2023 has been a tough year for Amazon Go. This closure comes about three and a half months after the company announced it would be closing eight of its automated-checkout convenience stores — two each in Seattle and New York City and four in San Francisco. It also announced in February that it has paused the rollout of its Amazon Fresh grocery stores.
