Convenience chain Coen Markets Inc. launched two checkout-free stores in partnership with Grabango, at its Amoco sites in Oakdale and Southpark, Pennsylvania.
Bp previously announced its partnership with Grabango, a leading provider of checkout-free technology for large-scale chains, which allows shoppers to skip the line and save time. Amoco – a bp brand – will be the first to go live with this technology at Coen-owned sites.
Grabango's deployment with Coen Markets is the most recent in a series of launches with other major retailers. "Checkout-free is quickly accelerating into the mainstream. Grabango's recent slew of store launches, all turned up in rapid succession, is part of the industry's rapid expansion that we'll see in 2023," Will Glaser, CEO of Grabango, said in the announcement.
Shoppers use the Grabango app to pay for items without needing to stand in line or scan their items. Shoppers simply grab what they need and are billed in the app. Payment is contactless and automatic.
Grabango leverages pure computer vision technology developed by leading experts to offer a contactless shopping experience. Grabango's checkout-free solution eliminates shrink, increases store capacity, and boosts shopper loyalty. In addition, the system installs easily without any interruption to store operations, does not require changes to store layout or product mix, and does not require special carts or gates.
