Is Amazon Coming to San Carlos?
June 8, 2016
Drive Through Grocery Pick-Up Planned.
If one of the largest internet shopping sites gets their way, they will be soon setting up a presence in San Carlos. According to this article in the Silicon Valley Business Journal, Amazon would like to open a drive-up grocery store at 380 Industrial Road, right across from the Palo Alto Medical Foundation hospital, and adjacent to the new Orchard Supply Hardware.
According to the article, Amazon is looking to grow their fledgling grocery business in the Bay Area, and they already have plans to build a similar drive-up grocery outlet in Sunnyvale.
It's likely that residents of the Greater East Side will be concerned about the additional traffic on Industrial Road that this outlet may generate, and there certainly need to be some public vetting before this project gets the final go-ahead.
More info will be posted on this topic as it becomes available.
