Earlier this year Amazon Fresh opened its second Montgomery County location at 8531 Chevy Chase Lake Terrace. The opening was the second Amazon Fresh in Chevy Chase with additional MoCo locations coming to Gaithersburg and White Oak. We now know that the upcoming location in Gaithersburg, on Shady Grove Rd., will now be opening in early 2023, according to signage on the door (exact date still not available).
The upcoming Amazon Fresh location will be outfitted with Amazon’s cashierless Just Walk Out technology. If you want a preview of what to expect, head over to the Chevy Chase Lake location that already has the same technology. The Gaithersburg store will be located in the former Office Depot location at 15790 Shady Grove Road in the 270 Center that’s currently home to Home Depot, Best Buy, Nordstrom Rack, and more.
Amazon Fresh has been described as an everyday grocery store with slightly lower prices, whereas Amazon-owned Whole Foods focuses on natural and organic foods at a higher price point. Some products from the Whole Foods 365 will be available at Amazon Fresh and the grocery store encourages the use of Amazon Prime.
