Amazon.com Inc. plans to launch a new non-Whole Foods grocery store in the LA neighborhood of Woodland Hills. The company on Monday posted listings for a store leader, grocery associates and a food service associate. The new store isn't expected to use cashierless technology like what is used in Amazon Go stores. Instead, it will have a conventional checkout.

"When it comes to grocery shopping, we know customers love choice and this new store offers another grocery option that's distinct from Whole Foods Market, which continues to grow and remain the leader in quality natural and organic food," an Amazon spokesperson told CNET.

The Woodland Hills store will be opening in 2020, Amazon confirmed and the store may be housed in what was once a Toys R Us, based on Google Maps data. Aside from its Amazon Go locations, Amazon also maintains Amazon Books and Amazon 4-Star physical retail chains.

The news that Amazon had plans to create a new grocery chain that was different from Whole Foods was first reported by The Wall Street Journal in March. Six months later, the Journal reported that Amazon had signed leases for more than 12 locations in the Los Angeles area.
