Amazon today opened a supermarket with no checkout operators or self-service tills. The 1,800-square-foot store is stocked with the usual convenience-store items: candies, cookies, bagels, chips, sodas, milk, cheese and trail mix, among other snacks.

Purchases are billed to customers' credit cards when they leave the store.
