And the network pointed out in a statement that the “Amazon Fresh” store in the “Ealing Broadway” commercial center is the first store in Britain to allow shopping and then go out directly “without waiting at a checkout box.” The store is also the first non-virtual giant network outside the United States.

Without the need to go through the box, the value of every commodity that the customer pulls from the shelf is automatically deducted from his account through the application installed on his phone.

The store also offers a wide variety of “Made by Amazon” products, including meat, fish, vegetables, baked goods, prepared foods and basic necessities.
