Aldi Opens Checkout-Free Store in London

Employees have been beta-testing new store concept for past few months




Supermarket chain Aldi (Essen, Germany) has opened its first checkout-free store in London, according to a press release.

The Aldi Shop&Go new concept store opened to shoppers on Greenwich High Street in Greenwich, London. For the past few months, Aldi employees have been beta-testing the store, which allows shoppers to purchase their groceries without scanning the products or going through a checkout lane.

Shop&Go uses technology from AiFi that relies on an array of specially positioned cameras to detect what items a shopper has picked up. The system automatically charges that customer’s account once they have left the store.
