Amazon has already opened four of its cashier-free grocery stores in the U.S., with more on the way.
Now the company is reportedly looking to open its first Amazon Go overseas in what could mark the beginning of a major expansion of the revolutionary new shopping experience.
According to a report in The Times over the weekend, the Seattle, Washington-based company is making moves to acquire multiple retail sites in the U.K. for Amazon Go stores. Doing away with checkouts, the store uses computer-vision technology to monitor selections, automatically charging a shopper’s account as they walk out of the door.
The Times’ sources said Amazon is interested in sites of around 5,000 square feet (about 465 square meters), almost three time larger than the first Amazon Go that opened in Seattle in January, 2018.
