Hollywood Casino at Greektown has announced the opening of a new grab-and-go market that will be the first location in Detroit to utilize Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology.

Located in the Monroe Market food hall, the 400-sqaure-foot Market Express will allow guests to grab refreshments and snacks without having to wait in a check-out line.

To shop, guests can enroll at the Amazon One device kiosk located outside the store, and then hover the palm of their hand over the Amazon One device at the entry gate. Those who do not want to sign up for Amazon One can simply insert a credit card at the entry gate.

Once inside the store, guests shop as usual while the Just Walk Out technology monitors what they pick up from, or put back on, store shelves. When they exit the store, the credit card or Amazon One account they used at the gate is charged for the items they took.

“At Hollywood Casino at Greektown, the customer experience is at the heart of everything we do, so being able to offer this innovative, convenient and seamless retail experience for our guests is certainly a win,” John Drake, the general manager of Hollywood Casino at Greektown said in a press release. “We’re thrilled to work with Amazon to bring this cutting-edge technology to Detroiters for the first time.”

Hollywood Casino at Greektown is located in downtown Detroit and offers 100,000 square feet of gaming and entertainment. Market Express is the latest addition to the casino’s dining scene and joins 313 Burger and Pizza along with the recently opened Detroit Taco Company.
