Tesco GetGo: Checkout-free supermarket opens in London

Tesco has opened a checkout-free store in London’s Holborn: Tesco GetGo.

GetGo aims for a checkout-free experience, with customers able to download the Tesco Grocery & Clubcard app – available for Apple iOS and Android devices – and then simply walk out of the store after making their selections.

Cameras around the GetGo store, combined with artificial intelligence (AI), will automatically recognise what you’ve packed into your basket and then you can leave for automated billing via the app.

It’s not totally checkout-free, though, as restricted items such as tobacco and alcohol, require a staffed station to verify customers’ legal ages prior to such sales.
