Business Apartments in Chicago Loop Get Amazon Go

As tech giant Amazon continues to enter just about any industry that is capable of being profitable, their second Amazon Go store location opened up this week in downtown Chicago. Amazon and Chicago city officials say a third is on the way, as Amazon is a fan of the Windy City and the customers that shop there.

Amazon Go stores aren’t like your typical convenience store, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t convenient. The stores, which sell everything from yogurt to bananas, don’t have any cashiers and instead rely on a sophisticated system of cameras that track customer’s movements and selections.

Located at 144 S. Clark, the store is smack dab in the middle of Chicago’s bustling Loop neighborhood and is surrounded by office buildings and business apartments. With so much activity happening around the new store, Amazon hopes that the 1,700 square foot facility will appeal to short-term renters and downtown workers alike.

To make this concept work, Amazon uses their app, a camera system and QR codes. The end result is a shopping experience like something out of Back to the Future. When customers walk inside the new store, they’ll scan a QR code, effectively identifying themselves and their payment method to the store. As they wander through the store, picking up items along the way, cameras and weight sensors track what is being taken off shelves.

When you have all of the items you need, there’s no need to stand in line and wait to pay. Shoppers are able to just walk out of the store with their new items – but it’s not free! Amazon calculates your total after you leave with your items and then automatically charges the card you have on file.

Every Amazon Go store, including the new one in Chicago, has a variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner items. Salads and sandwiches are available, as well as pre-made meal kits if you’re looking to try something new for dinner.

Discover Luxury with a Goose Down Comforter

There is not much more wonderful in life than snuggling up with your favorite comforter on a cold winter evening. Curling up in bed and feeling the warmth of your blanket smothering you can put even the most stressful person right to sleep. Therefore, you don’t want to skimp out on just any old comforter. You want one that is warm, luxurious, and can stand the test of time. Long story short, you want a goose down comforter for your bed.

The Comfort of Goose Down

Chances are that you have heard of a goose down pillow before, and maybe you have even had the opportunity of resting your head on one for the best night’s sleep of your life. However, not many people know that the same level of comfort that you have felt in your pillow, also can be filling for your favorite comforter to match. They come in all sizes, from twin to California king.

Meeting Your Needs

When you are looking at which goose down comforter to purchase, make sure that it matches your specifications. You already know the size of bed you have, so that part is easy. However, you also need to consider the fill level of your comforter. The more feathers you have, the more comfort you will experience. Also, make sure you are only looking at comforters that feature Hungarian goose down feathers. They have been proven to be the most comfortable filler on the market.

Another consideration is airflow. Not everyone is in an area where the temperatures drop below zero. Therefore, you need a comforter that can match your needs. Goose down comforters often come in different styles, depending on how much air flow you want to experience. The less amount of air circulation you have, the warmer it will be under your comforter. So, if you live somewhere where 90 degrees is considered cool, try finding a more lightweight comforter.[dcl=6309]
