Amazon Go Cashier-Less Convenience Store to Open Monday

The Amazon Go store that appeared in a video by the company back in 2016 will finally open its doors to the public on Monday. Just like Amazon Go, Amazon bookstores are geared for the digitally savvy. The timings of the newly launched Amazon Go store will be from 7 AM to 9 PM, Monday through Friday.

"This is the definition of disruption".

The company said its workers have been allowed to shop at the store during its testing phase.

As yet the company has no plans to introduce the technology to the hundreds of stores in the Whole Foods chain that it bought past year for $13.7bn (£10.7bn). One thing to note: the out-of-stock Pamplemousse LaCroix.

Smartphone in hand, I stood inside the Amazon Go store and turned the screen over to scan a unique QR code into the top of the waist-high interior gateway. When children were brought into the shop during the trial, they caused havoc by moving items.

To check out - there's a reason it's called Just Walk Out technology. Then you just walk out.

GeekWire's Todd Bishop checking out the Amazon Go high-tech retail store in Seattle this past week. Even when it was only open in beta mode for staff, tourists stopped occasionally to snap photos of the bright orange "beta participant" sign and peer in the windows. The system "learned" from Amazon employees over the past several months. "This technology didn't exist", she said.

What do you think of this technology?

"The smart move is to make this Amazon-only". The system includes both depth cameras and color cameras, and Amazon doesn't hide them, leaving them clearly visible overhead in the rafters of the store. "This works in a special type of format and a special store", he said.

Amazon Go marks the latest addition to Amazon's brick-and-mortar ventures.

See those black squares on the ceiling? The inside of the store is just like any other, with products you can buy all over the place.

Items of the same kind, such as a certain kind of salad, all weigh and cost the same amount.

The store also offers a basic lineup of grocery items, including milk, condiments, coffee, tea, toilet paper and the like. One dinner option is meal kits that are exclusive to Amazon. "People grab them on the way home", said Puerini.

If someone passes back through the gates with an item, his or her associated account is charged.

All Amazon Go shoppers will need to do is open the corresponding app and scan your phone on the way it. That's what makes the public opening such a significant test for the technology.
