Grocery Store of the Future Is Here: No Lines, No Cashiers [VIDEO]
A grocery store with no lines, no cash registers, and no cashiers -- as futuristic as that sounds, it's about to become a reality in early 2017. Who's behind it? Amazon, of course.
'Amazon Go' is slated to open next month in Seattle, home-base for the mega-retailer.
The design is different from anything you've seen before, but a lot like what you might expect. Customers check in with a phone app, then items are automatically added as they are placed in the shopping bag or cart. That means there's no need to stand in a checkout line, so shoppers just head for the door.
Business Insider reports that Amazon hopes to open 2,000 such grocery stores across the US in the next 10 years.
