Amazon Fresh stores, such as the one on Long Island, are no longer using ‘Just Walk Out’ technology

In a move to improve the shopping experience for its customers, Amazon is removing the Just Walk Out technology from its Amazon Fresh stores, including the Oceanside store in New York. Instead of scanning items and paying for them without waiting in line, customers will now use smart carts that allow them to keep track of their spending and skip the checkout line.

The decision to remove Just Walk Out technology was based on customer feedback and a desire to see receipts and savings as they shopped. The convenience of not waiting in line will still be available with the new technology. The change will be implemented in 27 of the 44 Fresh grocery stores across the country, primarily in California, Illinois, Virginia, and Washington state.

Amazon CEO Andy Jassy acknowledged in his 2023 shareholder letter that the company has faced challenges in finding a successful formula for its entry into the physical grocery market. Despite previous disruptions predicted in the sector following Amazon’s entry, the company has continued to make changes to improve its offerings. Recent reopenings of Fresh stores in Los Angeles, California point to a selective approach in opening new stores and renovating existing ones. Just Walk Out technology will still be available in Amazon Go stores and certain smaller Amazon Fresh stores in the U.K., as well as to third-party retailers.
