Opening more stores is yet another sign that Amazon is serious about expanding its physical presence. The story said the company could open as many as six storefronts in 2018, citing people familiar with the plans. After that, Amazon's system uses cameras and other sensors to track shoppers and identify what they take off shelves. The customers are automatically charged for the items they've picked up once they leave the store and a receipt is sent to the app.

The system, which Amazon calls "just walk out shopping", ran into some technical difficulties during almost 14 months of employee-only trials, people familiar with the matter said.

Staff won't include cashiers, but plenty of human employees will be needed to restock shelves, check ID for wine and work as extra security. It bought grocer Whole Foods previous year for $13.7billion, which gave it 470 stores, and has opened more than a dozen bookstores.
