Providing Convenience With Brick-and-Mortar Stores, Automated Retail

Brick-and-Mortar, Automated Retail Convenience

Foxtrot, a small company out of Chicago, is reinventing convenience store retail and taking it uptown. The retailer features gifts as well as standard convenience store necessities, and shoppers can also order products through its app or eCommerce site to be delivered within an hour. And Nutrimeals is taking the spirit of automation to Calgary offices with kiosks filled with fresh and prepared meals. All this, Today in Data.
