Kroger’s Atlanta Division announced recently it will introduce its new Scan, Bag, Go shopping technology, making the service available this year to customers in Georgia and South Carolina.
“With every new product, service and technology integration, Kroger is redefining the customer experience and reimagining the store of the future,” said Felix Turner, corporate affairs manager for Kroger’s Atlanta Division. “After testing Scan, Bag, Go in several locations, we are bringing this transformative technology to new stores across the southeast through Restock Kroger.”
Kroger’s in-house research and development team invented and built the Scan, Bag, Go technology, which allows customers to use a wireless handheld scanner or the Scan, Bag, Go app on their personal device to scan and bag products as they shop for a quicker, seamless checkout experience.
Scan, Bag, Go customers currently visit a store’s self-checkout area to provide payment. Customers will soon have the ability to provide payment directly through the app, allowing shoppers to exit the store even quicker.
The program allows customers to view and download digital coupons, keep a running total of their order and view the current week’s sales ad.
“Many of our customers have adopted this convenient new technology and responded favorably to the seamless checkout experience,” said Turner. “Scan, Bag, Go is one more choice, like ClickList, that Kroger provides so customers can choose when and how they want to shop with us.”
Scan, Bag, Go will be offered as an option alongside traditional checkout lanes staffed by friendly associates, self-checkout, online ordering, curbside pickup, and home delivery in select cities.
