article The world’s first vending machines began operating in the UK in April 2018.
They’re already being used to offer a range of products including coffee, snacks, tea and cigarettes.
The machines are being rolled out across the country, with many businesses opening them to people who might otherwise not be able to get a vending machine at home.
The vending machines have been credited with helping the UK’s economy boost, with the government spending £50 million in 2018 on them.

“The vending machine has given people a convenient outlet to buy what they want at home,” said David Walker, vice president of consumer marketing for UK retail giant Marks & Spencer.
“It’s not a convenience but it’s something that’s really convenient.”
Some people have complained about how noisy the machines are, while others have complained that they’ve been abused by people.
Vending machines have proved popular, but not for long The first vending machine in the United Kingdom was installed in June 2018.
By then, many retailers had already moved to using them as a convenience, as part of a shift away from cash-only shopping.
In July 2018, the UK introduced a law to ban vending machines in schools, and in December 2018, vending machines were removed from public places, such as shops.
The move is expected to save £3.2 million per year, according to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.
The move to allow vending machines is welcomed by many retailers, but it also means that many shops may not be allowed to sell food, clothing or electronics to people with a disability.
“We are delighted to see the UK government continue to support the use of vending machines to make it easier for people with disabilities to enjoy the convenience of a vending machines,” said Victoria Hargreaves, general manager of consumer retail for Marks & Simmons.
“Vending machine retailers are working to extend their reach to the most marginalised and marginalised groups, and this is great news for them.”
It’s important to note that this move is still just a pilot, so it may not last forever.
“We will continue to work with the vending machine industry and ensure the best opportunities for our customers remain.”
