retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Delish reports that Amazon is opening its first checkout-free Amazon Go store in the UK ,  in Ealing, west London.

According to the story, "The opening of the first Amazon Go store in the UK has been a big secret up until now. But The Mail On Sunday reports that the site in Ealing is set to be up and running this week. And plans for at least another 30 Amazon Go stores in Britain are already in the works."

KC's View:
  Amazon Go doesn't get a lot of attention these days, but I continue to believe that checkout-free technology will end up being as important to retailing as scanning.
