Amazon planning second drive-up grocery store
Amazon.com Inc. is planning a second drive-up grocery store in the Bay Area, showing that the e-tailer wants to roll out the new concept on a broader scale as it seeks a bigger share of the enormous grocery market.
I first reported last July on Amazon’s plans to build a 11,600-square-foot facility in Sunnyvale where customers would pick up grocery items already ordered online. The project was a first for Amazon and it wasn’t clear if the store was a one-off or a sign of something larger.
Now the same architects are working on an identical concept in San Carlos, at a site at 380 Industrial Road.
Notably, public records also directly connect Amazon to the site where the project is planned, providing the first direct proof that it is, in fact, Amazon that is behind the effort.
