MAPCO opened its first Grabango-powered checkout-free store. Now available in Brentwood, Tennessee, Grabango lets shoppers save time and skip the line with one-second checkout. MAPCO is the most recent in a line up of retailers to partner with Grabango to introduce a checkout-free shopping experience for its customers.
We’re excited to offer this game-changing checkout-free technology at our Brentwood location. 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. said Frederic Chaveyriat, CEO of MAPCO.
To date, Grabango has signed seven major retail partners, including two global top-10 grocers. Combined, the company’s partners represent over 375 million square feet of retail space, and each partner has $1 billion or more in annual revenue.
“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‘s checkout-free solution has been proven to eliminates shrink, increases store capacity, and boosts shopper loyalty. In addition, the technology installs seamlessly without any interruption to store operations, doesn’t require changes to store layout or product merchandise, and doesn’t require any special carts or gates.
Shoppers use the Grabango app for Apple or Android instead of checking out. 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.
