Scandinavian retail chain Coop Sweden has announced the launch of the first unmanned store located at Satrahojden in Gavle.
The store, which is an initiative to have more innovative retail solutions, was tested last summer and it will be operated by Coop Mitt, a co-operative running more than 60 stores in Gastrikland, Halsingland, Dalarna, Uppland and Vastmanland.
According to sources, the store is equipped with cameras and automatic doors, and customers needing to scan a QR code to be allowed in. Customers can shop using the self-checkout machines but pay via an app instead. The store offers about 400 items to choose from, where the Click & Collect service is also available.
The unmanned store will allow customers to buy groceries regardless of the time of day.
