A leading UK supermarket chain is trialling a store with no tills, forcing customers to scan and pay for items with an app. It does not accept cash or any other kind of card payment.
Sainsbury’s Local in Holborn, London is running the pilot for three months. Other stores have offered self-checkout by app before, but this is the first time in the UK that you can only checkout in a shop this way.
