Valora is now testing the Avec Box in Wetzikon (Switzerland). Customers can enter the store from Monday to Friday during rush hours even without an app and pay at self-checkout counters.
Valora is launching another "Avec Box" in Wetzikon. The convenience store provides access to the convenience range around the clock. At certain times of the day, shopping is also possible via self-checkout counter.
With the Avec Box
, which has just been installed in Wetzikon
, Switzerland, Valora
intends to herald the next test phase of "Switzerland's most modern convenience store". Valora is testing a hybrid model
in Wetzikon, for example. "Customers can now enter the store from Monday to Friday during the morning and evening rush hours without the "Avec App
" and pay at self-checkout counters," the company says.
During these time slots, employees
should be on site
to assist customers with questions, replenish shelves and keep the premises in order. Basically, access, purchase and payment are still carried out via the Avec App. "This is, so to speak, the customer's personal shop key, which can be used to shop around the clock from Monday to Sunday," Valora says.
The Avec Box will be at Wetzikon station until the end of 2020. According to Valora, the further roll-out of the store in Switzerland is still open. The new concept is designed to complement
Valora's existing formats and to meet growing customer demand for greater autonomy
App as shopping companion
Persons aged 14 and older can register in the Avec App. The app is available for iOS and Android. After successful registration, the customer enters the store by scanning a QR code
. He can then scan the desired products at his own pace and add them to his personal shopping cart. At the end the payment
is completed in the app.
"All personal data will only be processed in accordance with data protection
regulations," Valora writes.
