A convenience/fuel retailer is enabling shoppers to pay for purchases without needing to stand in line or scan their items.
Coen Markets Inc. is launching two checkout-free stores in partnership with frictionless shopping startup Grabango at stores in Oakdale and Southpark, Penn. Both stores sell fuel from Amoco, a BP brand. BP has been retrofitting Amoco convenience store locations across its network with Grabango’s platform for the past two years, as part of a broader initiative to reach net-zero by 2050 or sooner.
Based on pure computer vision technology, the Grabango solution is free for customers to use and allows shoppers to skip the line altogether. There are no special shelves, carts, baskets, or turnstiles required to enter or shop. To get started, shoppers download the free Grabango app and shop as they normally would.Chain Store Age
