3 Unique Finds North of Los Angeles, CA: Amazon Fresh, Amazon Style, and The Americana at Brand

Updated: Dec 4, 2023

Los Angeles is typically known for its entertainment industry, iconic landmarks and streets, celebrities, and the Hollywood sign. However, there is a lot more to it including when it comes to Amazon and Fashion! Around California, you will find 18 Amazon Fresh stores, but only one Amazon Style Store in Glendale within The Americana at Brand.

Now you may ask yourself, why do I care?

If you are anything like me, you love Amazon and the convenience it brings to your life, from Amazon Prime to Amazon Music to the Echo Devices and so on. Do you need some Elderberry while listening to Bad Bunny and do not have your phone on hand? Just tell your Echo device to pause the music and reorder the same Elderberry you got last month. Now think of that convenience at a grocery store or a clothing store. Sounds amazing, right? Okay, let me tell you more about Amazon Fresh and Amazon Style.

Amazon Fresh

Address: 5101 Lankershim Blvd, North Hollywood, CA 91601 and 17 others
Hours: 7 AM to 10 PM

Amazon Fresh is an online and physical grocery store, but we will talk about the physical store. Similar to a normal grocery store, you will find a wide assortment of national and local brands, plus high-quality produce, meat, and seafood. You can also find generic Amazon-branded items. Like Whole Foods, they also have delicious prepared foods made daily in their kitchen - these can be purchased by the pound. You can also check out with a cashier like normal.

However, what makes Amazon Fresh different are its "Dash Cart" stores and its "Just Walk Out" shopping stores. This specific Amazon Fresh store had the Dash Cart. A Dash Cart is a smart shopping cart that uses a combination of cameras, algorithms, and sensors to identify items put into the cart. It allows you to shop around Amazon Fresh, place your items in the cart, and when you are done, you can exit through the Dash Cart lane, and it will automatically charge the primary card on your account. Not only is this a unique technology-forward experience, but it's quick and efficient, and you will not have to wait in a regular check out lane.

Amazon Style

Address: 899 Americana Way, Glendale, CA 91210
Hours: Mon. - Thur. is 10 AM - 9 PM, Fri. and Sat. is 10 AM - 10 PM, and Sun. is 11 AM - 8 PM.

Amazon Style is Amazon's first physical store with clothing, shoes, and accessories for men, women, and kids! They even have other items for purchase, like house décor, games, and a few other smaller things. The prices you find in the store will be similar to those on The main difference is that you can try on clothing right then before you buy them. However, the feature that makes this store the most unique of them all is the shopping and fitting room experience!

Like a regular store, you enter and browse through. However, unlike other stores, you do not take the item with you and haul it around the store until you are ready to try them on. Instead, you use your phone to scan the QR code on the item, select the size you want, and once you are ready, a fitting room will be waiting for you with your selected items to try on! It was fascinating and a lot of fun to go around looking at items, scanning, and especially not having to carry them around the entire store. Their women's section is humongous. The men's section is smaller, but they have a great selection. The kids' section is also pretty small. However, we both found a lot of great options!

If you find the above experience overwhelming, as I did, you could also use your phone to browse the selections, pick your favorites, and send them to the fitting room that way! Once your fitting room is ready, the website will let you know what room number you are in. A majority of the rooms are upstairs, but we preferred that since it was more secluded compared to being down below with everyone shopping.

Matthew went to his fitting room first, and we noticed a few more items than he had chosen. Apparently, those were outfits that Amazon picked out for him based on his likes and initial picks! They did the same for me, and we liked most of the things they picked out for us than we had picked out for ourselves. They were all items we would not have picked out for ourselves, but they obviously knew better than us!

While in the fitting room, if you need another size or want to keep browsing for new items, you could do so on the touchscreen. After you choose your item and size, you click "bring to me," and in a few minutes, an Amazon associate would put the items in your fitting room closet. Do not worry - they will not catch you undressed. The closet door opens from your side and from "behind the scenes." When the associate places the items in your closet, it will lock on your end, so you cannot open it, and when you are opening the closet to grab the stuff, it will lock on the other side, so they cannot open it on the other end.

When you are done trying on your outfits, you leave what you do not want in the fitting room, and you will take the items you want to the cash register below to buy them. It's quite simple! There is even a way to purchase the articles you tried on at Amazon Style through the app and have them shipped to your house. Ask an associate to assist you with this because it is possible even though it is not widely known information!
