Amazon is inching ever closer to opening two cashier-less grocery stores in the D.C. area. We know this — though Amazon still won’t acknowledge as much — because it’s hiring for them.

The e-commerce giant has posted several openings related to Amazon Go Grocery stores in Greater Washington. While most are for work inside the stores, others suggest Amazon is looking to expand its physical retail footprint beyond what is already known.

Two of those jobs are for store managers and two more are for associate managers. The new hires would be pioneers in the region, as Amazon has yet to open any of these stores in the area, not even the smaller Amazon Go convenience stores with dozens of locations across the country.

Washington Business Journal has previously reported that Amazon secured permits to build out two physical grocery stores in the District — an 8,000-square-foot location at 1701 14th NW at the Liz, and a 12,700-square-foot shop at 901 H St. NE.
