MAPCO has opened its first Grabango-powered checkout-free store in Brentwood, Tenn. Grabango lets shoppers save time and skip the line with one-second checkout. MAPCO is the most recent in a string of innovative retailers to introduce checkout-free shopping for its customers.
“We’re excited to offer this game-changing checkout-free technology at our Brentwood location,” said Frederic Chaveyriat, CEO of MAPCO. “We look forward to bringing the same great MAPCO products our Brentwood customers know and love with the added convenience of a checkout-free option.”
The experience is fully contactless; shoppers simply select the items they want and are billed through the app. Payment is contactless and automatic; there’s no need for barcode scanning.
“We’re pleased to bring the time-saving benefits of Grabango’s checkout-free solution to another partner, especially one as committed to their shoppers’ experience as MAPCO,” said Will Glaser, CEO of Grabango. “We know that Grabango will delight shoppers and deliver value to the business as this capability is shared with more MAPCO shoppers every day.”
Grabango is based purely on computer vision, developed by experts in the field. As a result, Grabango’s checkout-free solution eliminates shrink, increases store capacity and boosts shopper loyalty. In addition, the technology installs easily without any interruption to store operations, doesn’t require changes to store layout or product mix and doesn’t require any special carts or gates.
