Amazon Fresh To Open on Border of Apple Valley

Amazon Fresh grocery stores will be locating on three sides outside of the Apple Valley border. On 160th & Cedar on our Lakeville border (above), AMAZON-FRESH is in the process of gutting the former Family Leisure Store which closed several years ago. Before Family Leisure, there was a Kowalski’s Grocery store at that location.
As we reported to you months ago, AMAZON FRESH is also completing their locations in BURNSVILLE where TJ Maxx used to be located just behind McDonalds on 42 and I-35W. Their 3rd location on our border is in EAGAN on Yankee Doodle Road across from Lunds & Byerlys and next to Burger King behind Cub. It is our understanding that all three locations will open when the Lakeville location is completed.
AMAZON FRESH is currently in 8 states. They are also looking at a few other locations but these are the first locations in Minnesota. Shoppers can still use cash or see a checkout person at a register but most will be either ordering online with Amazon Prime for pick-up or same day delivery or use their “Amazon Go” technology. How that works is that you take anything off the shelf and put it in your cart, it will automatically add it to your bill and you simply walk out. If you don’t want an item, you put it back on the shelf and it removes it from your bill. You use their app or scan a QR Code when you enter and then you simply WALK OUT with your items.
Their technology uses overhead, computer-vision cameras, weight sensors and deep-learning tech to determine your bill on your Amazon account.
