RTIH reviews this week’s coolest pieces of retail tech – Retail Technology Innovation Hub

Studenac and Wolt market

Studenac Market, Croatia’s largest retailer by number of stores, has partnered with Wolt, a European delivery platform, to launch dark stores featuring groceries.

Studenac will supply the products and equipment, while Wolt will take care of the logistics and delivery.

The first dark stores will open in Split, on the Adriatic coast, at the end of July, and in Zagreb, the Croatian capital, at the beginning of August. Users will be able to order products through Wolt, and Wolt will deliver in 30 minutes or less.

Amazon

Kyle Field, home of the Texas A&M Aggies, is set to become the first college location in the world to open stores equipped with Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology and Amazon One palm recognition and payment service.

Three checkout-free stores are scheduled to open this fall for fans to use during the college football season.

They will be able to insert their credit card at the front door or wave their palm over an Amazon One device to enter.

Just Walk Out technology determines which items shoppers take or return from the shelves, and when they leave, the credit card they have inserted or linked to their Amazon One ID will be charged for the items they have taken , without any payment being necessary.

Amazon (again!)

A new Dash Cart is coming to select Whole Foods Market stores this year, aiming to make in-store shopping easier and more convenient by eliminating the need to stand in checkout lines or unload and reload items at stations self-service payment.
