Amazon announced Monday it will open a new grocery store in Los Angeles' Woodland Hills neighborhood, one that company officials say will not compete with its 506 Whole Foods Markets or its Amazon Go cashierless sites. "The reason Amazon needs to expand its physical footprint is an accelerated demand for grocery pickup service as opposed to delivery," said David Bishop of research firm Brick Meets Click, but the company hasn't confirmed how the new store will be different or whether it plans to open more locations in the L.A. area.
