Gopuff is planning to open an omnichannel store in San Francisco outfitted with digital ordering kiosks and built to efficiently manage in-store and online orders, according to an application the company filed with the city.
The application plan outlines what’s essentially a modified dark store. In-store shoppers will use digital terminals to order beverages, ice cream, diapers and other goods. Workers then pick those orders from a product storage area that also services online orders, and bring them out to the customer.
A company spokesperson confirmed that Gopuff plans to open the San Francisco location along with additional retail stores, but declined to comment further on the format or expansion plans.Grocery Dive
