Customers can use the Amazon app to enter the branch and shop for what they need, bagging items as they go. 

The company's Just Walk Out Technology automatically detects when products are taken from or returned to the shelves.

At the end of their shopping trip, customers can walk out without stopping to stand in a queue to check out. Customers are then emailed their receipt.

An Amazon Prime Membership is not needed to shop at the Fresh store. 

The global company's new food brand 'by Amazon’ has hundreds of products, including meat, poultry and fish, dairy, fruit and veg, bakery, freshly prepared meals and everyday essentials.
