Amazon is scouting for UK retail sites suitable for the first UK launches of its checkout-free convenience store, Amazon Go.

According to the Sunday Times, the US company wants shops between 4,000 and 5,000sq ft, with no announced opening dates or locations.

Eros Retail director and Nisa store owner Harris Aslam visited an Amazon Go store in partnership with RN in February. He urged independents to adapt fast. “You can’t wait for an Amazon Go store to open next to you. You need to deliver convenience as well as you can, as quickly as you can,” he said.
