(Seattle, WA) -- Amazon reports it's planning to close eight of its "Go" cashier-less convenience stores across three cities.

That's includes two in New York City, two in Seattle, and four in San Francisco.

In a statement, the online retail giant said the move was part of a periodic assessment of its portfolio. Amazon went on to say it's committed to the format, and plans on opening up more "Go" stores in the future.

The first locations opened up back in 2018.
