Award-Winning Retailer Gives Its Customers More Choice, Both In-Store and Online…
February 8, 2018 – Madison, WI and Minneapolis, MN – GrocerKey (www.grocerkey.com), an omni-commerce software and operations leader, today announced Twin Cities-based Kowalski’s Markets will be expanding its existing eCommerce program with GrocerKey to now include Mobile Self-Checkout capabilities for shopper self-service. This new feature will let shoppers scan and pay from their personal devices in-store.
GrocerKey Mobile Self-Checkout expands the choices for shoppers using the successful Kowalski’s “On-the-Go” program, which currently offers online ordering, curbside pickup, and home delivery. Mobile Self-Checkout will be announced on Kowalski’s On-The-Go website when it is available.
Kowalski’s has pioneered innovation in merchandising, having selected GrocerKey in 2017 to digitally-enable its brand and its offers, and provide a more enhanced shopping experience. Previously hampered by tools that lacked sophistication and operational efficiency, Kowalski’s chose GrocerKey to provide a modern experience for shoppers online and in-store. GrocerKey’s comprehensive platform includes online browsing, eCommerce, picking, click & collect, home delivery, mobile apps, and now Mobile Self-Checkout.
Beyond these innovations, Kowalski’s also chose GrocerKey as an enablement partner, working side-by-side with GrocerKey to source and enable rich content, deepen CPG relationships to source offers, and efficiently and affordably implement its solution platform. “In choosing a partner for our online business, we wanted one that provided value beyond the technology,” said Mike Oase, COO of Kowalski’s Markets. “GrocerKey is a partner we trust to ensure shopper satisfaction through innovative technology and operational success.”
GrocerKey launched Mobile Self-Checkout as an expansion of its popular mobile shopping application, enabling a frictionless checkout experience. “Kowalski’s stays ahead of the competition by balancing a new, rich digital experience with a superb in-store atmosphere,” stated Jeremy Neren, CEO of GrocerKey. “We’re excited to expand the Kowalski’s On-The-Go program and begin offering our new Mobile Self-Checkout application to bring more value to shoppers at any and all of their eleven stores throughout the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro.”
