LONDON – British retail chain Tesco has opened its first supermarket in London without a cash register or payment counter. As announced by the company, special cameras and sensors should enable customers of its London branch to walk in with their chosen items from the store, which opened on Tuesday.

A Tesco app must be used when entering the branch. Amazon and Aldi have already started such pilot projects. In Great Britain, self-service checkouts, where customers scan their products themselves, are far more widespread than in Germany.

German retail chains are also experimenting with similar concepts. Reeve tested “pick and go” shopping in Cologne without a cash register in early summer.
