Amazon is once again evolving its grocery concept, this time cutting one of its well-known innovations. The retail giant announced that it will be removing its Just Walk Out technology from its Amazon Fresh stores as it continues to revamp.

The innovative technology enables shoppers to pay for their products without standing in line and send a receipt afterward. According to ABC News, Amazon will replace Just Walk Out with smart carts that allow consumers to skip checkout and see their spending in real-time.
