GRAND RAPIDS, MI - Just in time for the spring and summer holidays and the crowds that they bring, Meijer unveils a streamlined shopping and checkout program, called “Shop & Scan,” which enables shoppers to scan bar codes and bag groceries throughout their shopping experience—an initiative that will greatly decrease check out times.

"Shop & Scan will make the Meijer experience dramatically faster and more convenient for our customers," said Terry Ledbetter, Chief Information Officer, according to Market Insider. "This technology joins our curbside pickup and home delivery programs to provide yet another option for Meijer customers to personalize their shopping experience."

The “Shop & Scan” technology, which works alongside Meijer’s mPerks program, initially launched in November at Grand Rapids, Michigan-area stores. The program bears remarkable similarities to Kroger’s “Scan, Bag, Go” technology on which we have reported here and here—taken together, these two customer-oriented technological innovations indicate an industry-wide shift towards even greater convenience and customer service as spurred by Amazon.
