Amazon to open checkout-free grocery stores in UK - report

Monday 9 January 2017 | 17:18 CET | News
US online retailer Amazon appears to be getting ready to open checkout-free grocery stores in the UK after registering a UK trademark for its Amazon Go format, writes The Guardian. Amazon did not say anything about whether it plans to launch Amazon Go outside the US. It opened its first bricks and mortar foodstore on 5 December near its headquarters in Seattle. Amazon staff can only shop there now, but it will open to the public early in 2018.
