LOS ANGELES (AP) - Amazon says it is expanding its footprint further into the traditional grocery-store business with a store it plans to open in Los Angeles next year.

Amazon, which bought the upscale Whole Foods grocery chain in 2017, also operates 16 Amazon Go stores in several cities where people can pick up food and beverages, paying for them with the retailer’s phone app.

But the Los Angeles Times reported Monday that this new store will be more along the lines of traditional grocery stores with cashier stations.

Amazon says the store will also be distinct from Whole Foods, although it didn’t explain how. It also did not reveal the store’s name.

The Times says Amazon has listed four job openings for the store that is planned for the city’s Woodland Hills area.
