The world of food retail is constantly evolving and growing - to get ready for the next generation of shoppers. In the December edition of 'Things we see in retail & loyalty', we highlight how retailers such as REWE, Carrefour, Amazon, and Sainsbury's are taking their shoppers into a next-generation experience.
Carrefour’s new concept store, Flash 10/10, offers shoppers the ‘most accessible and fastest shopping experience ever’: 10 seconds to shop and 10 seconds to pay. The store’s 60 HD cameras and 2,000 sensors eliminate the need to scan items or remove them from shopping bags so shoppers can pay quickly and leave. There is no need to download an app or register beforehand. And there are no surprises – they can view their total spending in real-time. Source: esmmagazine.com
Boxed.com, the online bulk products retailer, is set to broaden its offering by purchasing MaxDelivery, the on-demand grocery delivery service. Once finalized, the deal will grant Boxed shoppers access to a significantly expanded selection of groceries and fresh food.

REWE has joined forces with Deutsche Bahn subsidiary DB Regio and Fairtrade Deutschland to introduce a sustainable supermarket on a train. The mobile market offers shoppers a wide range of 3,000 Fairtrade, organic, and regional items across three shopping cars and there’s also an onboard bistro.
Using ‘just walk out’ technology from Amazon, Sainsbury’s has launched its inaugural checkout-free store. Shoppers at the store, which is called SmartShop Pick & Go, link a debit or credit card to the SmartShop app. Cameras then detect what products they choose, and payment is automatically taken as they leave.
In a bid to introduce new technological solutions to mobility challenges of the future, Just Eat Takeaway is testing drone delivery. The experimental delivery route will be monitored to gauge the effects on the environment, how residents experience the delivery and the added value of delivering by drone. Source: retailtrends.nl
