Dec 5 Amazon.com Inc's new
bricks-and-mortar grocery store doesn't have at least one thing
that supermarkets have - queues at the checkout counter.
The online shopping giant's new 1,800-square-foot (167
square meter) convenience store, Amazon Go, in Seattle uses
sensors to detect what shoppers have picked off the shelf and
bills it to their Amazon account if they don't put it back.
Amazon Go, currently available only for its employees, is
expected to be publicly available early next year, the company
said on Monday. amzn.to/2gbKMr5
Apart from groceries such as bread and milk, the store also
offers ready-to-eat breakfasts, lunches and dinners made fresh
by on-site chefs and local kitchens and bakeries, Amazon said.
