The House of Mouse is getting a face lift. Seven years after its most recent reboot, the Disney Store—first established in 1987 and now operating 387 locations—recently debuted a concept location they are now slowly phasing into stores worldwide.
It’s time to check in on grocery self-checkout. The technology debuted in 1992 and has been integrated into the vast majority of supermarket chains as well as newer regional stores. But, nearly since their inception, issues of theft and customer dissatisfaction have forced some stores to only selectively deploy the technology or, in some cases, to abandon it entirely. So, how does self-checkout check out?
Historically, retailers have seen more foot traffic during the holiday shopping season than any other time of year. Yet like many other industries, the mobile movement is causing disruption to the traditional in-store experience.
A hot new technology trend has hit the market, and several industries are taking advantage: the mobile checkout movement. We’ve seen what can be accomplished with beacon technology, so it’s no surprise that mobile has more capabilities that can further enhance the shopping experience.
