SunnyBee launches India’s first self-checkout grocery store

Chennai: SunnyBee Market, a chain of food stores in Chennai has introduced ‘India’s first-of-its-kind’ self-checkout store in Besant Nagar.

A press release said this has been done considering the need for a safe shopping experience by limiting contact and to improve overall speed of checkouts. WayCool Labs has developed this custom solution for SunnyBee.

Shoppers scan their purchases on their own and place the scanned products in the conveniently hanging bags or use their own bags. With a single click on the touch screen to pay, a QR code will pop up on the screen. Customers scan this QR code on their mobile using any one of the numerous UPI payment methods, it added.

Sriram Sridharan, Business Head, SunnyBee Market said, “there is a sense of uncertainty among shoppers due to multiple interactions within the store. Hence, the self-checkout solution was designed, developed, and implemented in 15 days despite the lockdown.”
