JUST IN: Amazon Fresh announces opening date in Lorton

Amazon is bringing its version of a grocery store — Amazon Fresh — to Lorton this month.

The business plans to open a 38,000-square-foot location on June 23. It’s one of three locations coming soon to Northern Virginia.

A location in Manassas opened today (Thursday), and an Arlington location is expected to open in the coming weeks.

Amazon is proud to support these communities by creating hundreds of high-quality jobs with the opening of each store, offering a starting wage of $15.50/hour, and donating surplus food to local food banks,” the company wrote in a press release.

The Lorton location is at 9409 Lorton Market Street and will be open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Like the Fairfax City store that opened in April, all three locations will feature Just Walk Out shopping — technology that allows customers to skip the checkout line.

Customers enter the store by scanning an in-store QR code in the Amazon app or using a credit or debit card to open the “Just Walk Out’ gates. Anything taken off a shelf is added to the virtual card. Customers then scan or use their card to exit the grocery store.

Amazon Fresh will accept cash, SNAP/EBT, credit or debit card, and the Amazon app.

The store will include national brands, made-to-order pizzas, rotisserie chickens, hot sandwiches, 365 by Whole Foods Market organic products, and local brands like Mason Dixie Biscuits, Bread First Bakery and Taharka Brothers Ice Cream.

According to the press release, Amazon Fresh will provide a coupon for $10 off orders of $20 or more that can be used at its new stores.
