Starbucks and Amazon have teamed on their second “Starbucks Pickup with Amazon Go” location in New York City. The physical retail partnership between the tech and coffee giants features a Starbucks counter for picking up mobile orders; an Amazon Go market that uses the company’s “Just Walk Out” cashierless checkout system; and a lounge with individual workspaces, tables, power outlets and USB ports. The new space is located in The New York Times Building at 40th Street and 8th Avenue and comes several months after the opening of the first New York location. In other store news, Starbucks announced Monday that it will close 16 cafes, including five in Seattle, because of safety concerns related to crime.
