Even though Amazon is a massive online mega-retailer, the company is still branching out. There’s Amazon’s online streaming service with original series like Transparent, for one. And did you know it owns a bunch of other sites, such as IMDB.com and Goodreads? Oh, and then of course there’s the way they are changing the way we food shop by having groceries and restaurant takeout delivered ASAP.

But their latest announcement is the company’s biggest one yet. Amazon just revealed that the company will be opening its first brick-and-mortar store in 2017 (in its home base of Seattle, of course)—and 2,000 more in the next 10 years. And here’s the best part: there will be no checkout line. You’ll be able to scan items as you go using the Amazon app (connected to your Amazon account, which will bill you). Then, you can just prance out of the store.

So what will these new stores sell? Called Amazon Go, it will be a supermarket with everything from grocery staples to locally made chocolates—as well as breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks made by on-site chefs and local kitchens and bakeries. Or you can pick up an Amazon Meal Kit, with everything you need to make a meal for two in about 30 minutes.

And to think, once upon a time you only used Amazon to order books online.

Rather just have a meal kit delivered to your home every week? Here’s how to find the perfect one. And here’s a quick primer on how to read a food label, to ensure you buy stuff that really does your body good.
