Amazon is discontinuing its Just Walk Out technology.

Amazon Ditches ‘Just Walk Out’ Technology in Fresh Stores: Prioritizing Customer Experience in Redesign Efforts

Amazon is revamping its Amazon Fresh stores by removing the “Just Walk Out” technology that allowed shoppers to skip the check-out line. The grocery chain, under the direction of senior vice president of grocery stores Tony Hoggell, who joined Amazon in 2022, is being redesigned with customer feedback playing a crucial role in the decision-making process.

The company’s acquisition of Whole Foods in 2017 expanded its reach in the grocery industry, and now over 516 stores are in operation across the US and Canada. With dozens of Fresh grocery stores located across the country, including states like California, Illinois, Virginia, and Washington, Amazon is also known for its cashier-free convenience stores under the Amazon brand.

In an effort to improve customer experience and convenience, new “smart” shopping carts have been introduced in Amazon Fresh stores. These carts will allow customers to skip the check-out line while still being able to monitor their spending in real-time. Customers will receive their itemized bill via email, providing them with a transparent view of their purchases.

Although “Just Walk Out” technology is being removed from Amazon Fresh stores, Amazon continues to operate a few Go Stores that utilize this technology. The company’s commitment to innovation and customer experience remains at the forefront of its operations as it explores new ideas and technologies. While some projects may be abandoned, Amazon’s dedication to leveraging technology to enhance the shopping experience remains a priority. Ultimately, customer feedback and preferences play a crucial role in shaping Amazon’s approach to retail innovation.
