UK: First Amazon Fresh till-less grocery store in UK closes

Amazon’s first till-less store in the UK, which opened in west London just over two years ago, has been closed.

The Amazon Fresh shop opened in Ealing Broadway in March 2021 and was the online giant’s first “just walk out” grocery store outside of the US.

It permanently shut on Sunday along with two other Amazon Fresh stores, in Wandsworth and East Sheen.

Amazon said they were closed after an assessment of its “portfolio of stores”, but new outlets were planned.

Visitors to Amazon Fresh shops scan a smartphone app when they enter and are then automatically billed for the items they pick up as they depart, without having to visit a till.
