Starbucks is opening a cashierless store in New York City

Teamed up with Amazon

Starbucks has teamed up with Amazon to use its Just Walk Out tech in a new cashier-less store in NYC.

The new store, located at 59th Street between Park & Lexington Avenues in Manhattan, will integrate Starbucks app’s order ahead feature with Amazon's Just Walk Out technology.

When customers walk into the store, which is opening today, they can enter by using the “In-Store Code" in the Amazon Shopping app, by scanning their credit cards, or just the palm of their hand, if they’re already registered with Amazon One. Employees will be nearby to help any customers who are unfamiliar with the technology.

Over the next year, Starbucks and Amazon plan to open at least two more locations. The second location will also be in Manhattan, in the New York Times Building located at 40th Street and 8th Avenue.
