Just Walk Out technology is being removed by Amazon from its Fresh grocery stores in the US

Amazon Ditches Just Walk Out Tech for Smart Carts in Amazon Fresh Stores

In an effort to improve the grocery shopping experience for customers, Amazon is making changes to its Amazon Fresh stores. The company has removed the Just Walk Out technology and replaced it with smart carts that allow customers to skip the checkout line while also viewing their spending in real time. This decision comes after receiving feedback from customers who wanted to see their receipts and savings as they shopped.

Amazon operates dozens of Fresh grocery stores across the country and is currently focusing on remodeling existing stores and selectively opening new ones. The company’s foray into the grocery sector has not been without challenges, with CEO Andy Jassy acknowledging that finding the right formula to have a larger impact on physical grocery is a priority.

While the Just Walk Out technology will no longer be available in Amazon Fresh stores, it will still be offered in Amazon Go stores and some smaller Amazon Fresh stores in the U.K. The company will continue to offer the technology to third-party retailers, providing a cashier-free shopping experience. With this shift in technology at Amazon Fresh stores, customers will now have the convenience of skipping the checkout line while also being able to track their spending in real time, addressing the needs and preferences of shoppers.
