Greece has acquired the first full robot store as the i-mall micromarket opens Thursday afternoon in Nea Smyrni, southern Athens. This is an unstaffed mini-market where you buy products from various vending machines. All transactions are done electronically and can be purchased from home via the app and received from automatic lockers.
The i-mall micromarket is a 100% Greek idea, designed and implemented by a group of 30 Greeks. We will work with partners in Italy and the United States to complete the implementation of the most innovative solutions in the small retail space.
The goal is not only to operate 80 stores in Greece within the next three years, but also to expand overseas, first in Europe and then elsewhere. The store is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is open only for contactless payments.
Consumers can purchase by visiting the store, ordering through the application and receiving at Skroutz points. Product payments are made using credit / debit cards, electronic wallets such as Google Pay and Apple Pay, and i-mall coins. You can also pay using an electronic wallet installed on your wearable (such as a smartwatch).
