Aldi unveils checkout-free concept store in London

Aldi has opened its first checkout-free store in London.

The new trial Aldi Shop&Go store – which is situated on Greenwich High Street – allows customers to complete their shop without scanning a single product or having to go through a checkout.

Customers can download the Aldi Shop&Go app which will allow them to enter the store, pick up their items and then simply walk out when they have completed their shop. Once a customer leaves the store they will then be automatically charged for their shopping via their selected payment method and a receipt will appear in the app.

The system – provided by technology provider AiFi – uses specially positioned cameras to detect which products customers have picked up, before charging them to their Aldi Shop&Go account when they leave the store.

Customers wishing to purchase alcohol, or other Challenge 25 products, will be able to use facial age estimation technology to authorise their purchase.

“This store utilises the very latest in retail technology offering Aldi’s award-winning products and unbeatable prices to customers in a new and innovative way,” commented Giles Hurley, ceo of Aldi UK. “The team are really excited about seeing customers come in and experience Aldi Shop&Go.”
