Amazon (AMZN) Tests Grocery Store Model With NO Checkout Lines

Could it get any better than a grocery store that has no lines? You pick your stuff out, put it in your cart, and then.. you’re done. No line to stand in, no long check out process.

Amazon is testing such a model out in a Seattle grocery store that would work with no checkout lines.

It’s called Amazon Go, and the model allows shoppers to simply scan their Amazon app upon entering the store. They then scan items which will be automatically charged to their Amazon app.

Called Amazon Go, shoppers scan their Amazon app when they enter the store, and then sensors register items that shoppers pick up and automatically charge them to the Amazon app.

The store, which is in testing, is open to Amazon employees on a trial run, but is expected to open to the public in early 2017.
