Amazon Opens First Whole Foods Dark Store

The store will fulfil online orders but never be open to the public.

Located in Brooklyn’s Industry City Complex, the new dark store will fulfil online grocery orders for customers. Dark stores are becoming more frequently utilised by supermarkets to provide a safer location for staff to fulfil online orders without being exposed to the threat of the coronavirus.

To keep up with the demand of their ever-growing grocery offering, Amazon has employed hundreds of new staff to work in the dark store who will keep the operations of grocery delivery moving swiftly.
