Amazon Ditches ‘Just Walk Out’ Technology in Fresh Stores to Improve Shopping Experience

Amazon is revamping its Amazon Fresh stores by removing the “Just Walk Out” technology that allowed shoppers to skip the check-out line. This decision is part of an effort to improve the grocery chain, as confirmed by reports from Bloomberg and Associate Press. Tony Hoggell, senior vice president of grocery stores at Amazon, has committed to redesigning the stores based on customer feedback.

Customers expressed their desire to skip the check-out line but also wanted to view their receipt and savings while in line. In response, Amazon will introduce new “smart” carts that allow customers to see their spending in real-time while also allowing them to skip the check-out line. Customers will receive an itemized bill via email for their purchases.

In addition to Fresh stores, Amazon owns cashier-free convenience stores under the Amazon brand and Whole Foods, which was acquired in 2017 for $13 billion. Whole Foods has over 516 stores in the US and Canada, with a concentration in California, Texas, and Florida. The revamped shopping experience at Amazon Fresh stores aims to provide a more seamless and convenient shopping experience for customers.

While some may be disappointed by the removal of “Just Walk Out” technology from Amazon Fresh stores, customers ultimately shape the success of these initiatives with their preferences and behavior. As always, Amazon continues to innovate and try new ideas to enhance the customer experience.
