Amazon’s cashierless checkout technology is coming to its new supermarkets

Amazon’s cashierless checkout technology could soon be coming to its growing line of Fresh grocery stores. Features of Amazon’s automated checkout technology called “Just Walk Out,” appear in planning documents for a store under construction in a suburban shopping plaza in Brookfield, Connecticut. Amazon declined to comment.  Amazon opened its first Fresh grocery store in Los Angeles’ Woodland Hills neighborhood. It has since opened a dozen stores, located in southern California and in several suburbs of Chicago. The company also plans to open a handful of stores on the East Coast. Amazon Fresh stores are roughly 35,000 square feet, or about the size of a store in Amazon’s other grocery chain, Whole Foods. The format incorporates a blend of in-store and online shopping while offering consumers a variety of products at lower price points than the largely upscale options offered at Whole Foods.
