Take & GO, Warsaw. A new chain of self-service stores is entering Warsaw. There will be no service or typical check-out in the premises. We will make purchases without queues. A special system integrated with a dedicated application on your phone is all you need.
No cash registers and no queues
A store without cash registers. You go in, pack your items into the bag, confirm the list and leave – that’s how Take & GO owners describe the concept in a nutshell. Unattended stores are already operating in Poznań, and will soon appear in Warsaw. Where? We do not know this for now, but soon the network is to reveal details and locations of the premises. In total, around 20 stores are planned to be built by the end of 2020 – mainly in Poznań and Warsaw.
Mobile access only
The store will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, also on non-commercial Sundays. To enter it, you must download a dedicated mobile application, register and connect your payment card. The door to the store is opened with a QR code from the application. Selected products should b
e placed in the designated place at the payment point. After a while, without the need to scan goods, a shopping list will appear on the screen. All thanks to RFID tags, which are on every every item. All you have to do is accept the list and your card will be charged. The invoice is sent to the e-mail address provided and available in the application.
What will be available at Take & GO?
Initially about 900 products will be available in Take & GO stores, mainly food assortment and a wide range of ready meals. No cigarettes or alcohol. Instead, sliced fruit, juices without preservatives and high-quality coffee will be available store. The product offer at the store will increase or decrease as the network develops learning and adapting to the requirements and needs of customers. The network announces that it will soon be possible to buy, among others baby products and animal food.
Carrefour already has such a store in Warsaw
The store is located in Warsaw at ul. Światowida 18 and operates around the clock, including non-trading Sundays. If the new format is adopted, in the future similar stores may appear in other parts of Warsaw.
