Starbucks Corp. and Amazon.com Inc. have partnered for a new store concept, Starbucks Pickup with Amazon Go, opening Thursday in New York City.

The store allows customers to order ahead on the Starbucks /zigman2/quotes/207508890/composite SBUX +0.62% app, and integrates Amazon’s /zigman2/quotes/210331248/composite AMZN -5.95% Just Walk Out technology that bypasses a visit to checkout.

Located in Midtown Manhattan, the location also features wider tables and USB ports for those who will stick around, along with the full Starbucks menu and additional food items from the Amazon Go lineup.

“Our goal with this new store concept is to give our customers the ability to choose which experience is right for them as they go through their day, whether it is utilizing the Starbucks and Amazon apps to purchase food and beverages on the go, or deciding to stay in the lounge for the traditional third place experience Starbucks is known for,” said Katie Young, senior vice president of global growth and development at Starbucks, in a statement.

A digital screen will alert customers of the status of their orders when they arrive. Once inside the store, any additional items are added to a customer’s virtual cart when it’s removed from the shelf. Customer payment cards are charged when they leave the store.

Starbucks and Amazon are planning at least three of these locations, with one located in the New York Times /zigman2/quotes/202090840/composite NYT -2.38% building expected next year.

Starbucks says the new store is part of the company’s enhanced digital strategy.
