[InKunming--Kunming] After the first unmanned store was opened in Kunming in March, 2018, more and more unmanned stores appear in the streets and on the roads this year in Kunming.

The first unmanned store was located at Yunnan Nationalities Village Park. Since then, unmanned stores ran at Guangfu Community, Wanda Square and in the Xiyuan Street drew passers-by’s eyes.

Passers-by, who have interests in the stores, could scan two-dimensional codes that were printed on the walls of the stores’ gates, and then enter the stores. It may take only 10 seconds for the passers-by to go into the stores.

When they entered the stores, two bumblebee robots standing near to the stores would speak out words that welcome the passers-by, and inform them the ways to settle accounts if they would buy commodities.

There is a computer put in a corner of the stores. It can help consumers to finish self-checkout. Prices of the commodities in the stores are as usual as the other man-operated stores. 

Finishing purchase, consumers could go out of the unmanned stores by waiting for only 10 seconds again. A small compartment was set up in the stores that could facilitate consumers or passers-by get in and out.
