MAPCO Picks Grabango for Cashierless Checkout
Convenience stores are a hotbed for cashierless tech.
MAPCO announced today that two of its Nashville, Tennessee convenience store locations will be outfitted with Grabango’s cashierless checkout technology this fall.
Users download the Grabango mobile app, shop as they normally would and then bypass the checkout line by scanning a special QR code on their phones.
Grabango CEO Will Glaser told OttOmate this week that convenience stores have moved from curiosity about cashierless checkout to launching multi-store pilots.
The first big wave of cashierless checkout adoption is starting small. MPACO is the latest convenience store chain to jump into cashierless world with today’s Grabango announcement. Though the pilot will start at two undisclosed locations in Tennessee, MAPCO has 330 stores across the U.S. Southeast, so if the pilots work out, Grabango could be across a number of Southern states next year.
For its part, Grabango is getting pretty good at signing up C-store chains across the country.
