Tesco opens the first supermarket without checkouts | Free Press

No more annoying queues at the supermarket checkout. There are many cameras and sensors at Tesco in Great Britain for this.

London (AP) – British retail chain Tesco opened its first supermarket in London without cash registers or payment counters. Special cameras and sensors should allow customers of the London branch, which opened Tuesday, to simply walk around with their selected goods from the store, as the company announced.

A Tesco app must be used when entering the branch. Amazon and Aldi have already started such pilot projects. In Great Britain, self-service checkouts, where customers scan their products themselves, are much more widespread than in Germany.

German retail chains are also experimenting with similar concepts. For example, Rewe tested cashless shopping in Cologne already in summer under the name “Pick & Go”.
