ShopRite Reveals New Online Contactless Grocery Pick Up Pods; Steve Savas and Larry Blue Discuss



KEASBEY, NJ - In the retail space, innovation, convenience, and safety continue to inspire shopper loyalty. Picking up on this trend, ShopRite has unveiled its new QuickCollect GO!™ POD, where consumers can quickly pick up their online grocery orders from a temperature-controlled outdoor pod for an easy contactless experience.

Steve Savas, President, Shop-Rite Supermarkets“The QuickCollect GO!™ POD will make it even easier for our shoppers at the New Rochelle store to pick up their online orders,” said Steve Savas, President, Shop-Rite Supermarkets (SRS), which operates ShopRite stores in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and the Hudson Valley and Capital Region in New York. “It’s self-checkout and pickup for online orders that’s done right outside the store. We are excited to be the first grocer on the East Coast with this technology.”

This smart grocery retrieval system is capable of holding ambient, refrigerated, and frozen foods, making shoppers’ entire grocery orders available for pickup with one simple solution, according to a press release. The free-standing pod is now available as an option at the ShopRite of New Rochelle, New York, offering convenience for local consumers.

ShopRite unveiled its new QuickCollect GO!™ POD, allowing consumers to quickly and securely pick up their online grocery orders in a contactless manner

Developed by Bell and Howell, a provider of automated e-commerce pick up solutions, the QuickCollect GO! utilizes robotic automation that allows secure delivery and retrieval of online orders anytime. The first totes start dispensing to consumers in under one minute, reducing wait time for those picking up their products.

All of this happens using Bell and Howell’s next-generation automation and intelligent software. Once shoppers place their orders online, the pod keeps items safe and secure until the consumer picks them up with a unique code. When their orders are ready, shoppers receive a text message containing a QR code to scan at the pod’s console screen, bringing the order to the pickup portal. Offerings like the QuickCollect GO! POD are continuing to drive trend progression and giving consumers the convenience they desire from e-commerce.

Larry Blue, President and Chief Executive Officer, Bell and Howell“Retailers like ShopRite recognize that consumer convenience and fulfillment efficiency are critical to the next level of e-commerce,” stated Larry Blue, President and Chief Executive Officer of Bell and Howell. “Our data shows that consumers enjoy the convenience of this new individual automated curbside pickup with our QuickCollect GO! POD.”
