Tesco opens checkout-free store
Supermarket giant Tesco has opened its first fully automated checkout-free grocery store in London
Tesco said the new concept, called GetGo, will be tested at a Tesco Express in High Holborn and follows a successful trial at a store in Welwyn Garden City, where Tesco is based.
The supermarket has partnered with Trigo for the store which is outfitted with cameras on the ceilings, allowing customers to walk in, pick their desired items, and walk out without stopping at the checkout.
Payments and receipts are settled digitally which is the first time anyone other than Amazon has rolled out frictionless checkout grocery stores in the world.
