Amazon Fresh May Be Moving Away from Just Walk Out Technology

Amazon Fresh is revolutionizing its checkout process with the introduction of smart Dash Carts. The retailer has been working tirelessly to revamp its grocery strategy and is now shifting its focus to achieve success with its Fresh business. Instead of relying on Just Walk Out technology, Amazon’s next generation of Fresh stores will use Dash Carts for a seamless checkout experience.

In August, Amazon unveiled redesigned Fresh stores in Schaumburg and Oak Lawn, Ill., as part of its efforts to create a top-tier grocery shopping experience. Tony Hoggett, Amazon SVP of grocery stores, revealed that the new batch of Fresh stores will not use Just Walk Out technology. Existing Amazon Fresh locations will also be updated to “version two” stores without the technology. Instead, the retailer will implement Dash Carts – smart shopping carts equipped with scanners and screens, allowing shoppers to check out as they shop.

Dash Carts enhance the shopping experience by facilitating easier navigation, discovering new items, and finding the best deals. According to reports, Amazon will continue to utilize Just Walk Out technology in a limited number of Fresh stores in the U.K. and some Amazon Go stores. Austin-based Whole Foods, with over 500 stores in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K., was named one of PG’s Retailers of the Century alongside Amazon based in Seattle.
