How to launch a self-service grocery store? Discover Blockstore, the turnkey Amazon Go!

If we recently saw the giant Amazon set up its first Amazon Go in Europe, it is a widespread concept, especially in South Korea. Indeed, known for its innovations, the country has been regularly opening self-service stores in big cities for a few years now, new fully digitalized shops that allow to reduce costs while being able to open 24 hours a day.
In the digital age, but also in a context of economic and health crisis, the opening of a self-service grocery store would allow to drastically reduce some maintenance costs while reaching a larger customer base.

How does an automatic grocery store work?

The principle of an automatic grocery store is simple  the customer enters the store, chooses the products he needs and leaves immediately. And all this, no matter the day or the hour! To start shopping, they simply present a credit card or a payment application on their smartphone at a kiosk at the entrance of the store. Then the procedure is simple : as in a supermarket or a grocery store, you just have to fill your basket with the desired products by placing your hand on the handle of the cabinets, which will have the effect of unlocking them. Once the purchases are made, the customer leaves the store and will be debited automatically.
