Zippin has reopened its checkout-free concept store in San Francisco.
This launched in August of last year, but as more of a working lab that was operational for limited hours. It is now open to the public, after Zippin worked on the technology and remodelled the space “to offer the best-possible shopping experience to our neighbours in the up-and-coming East Cut ‘hood.”
“Our store facelift is just one of a number of exciting developments for Zippin this year,” the company says in a blog post. “As a technology provider helping large retailers quickly and efficiently deploy frictionless shopping experiences, that can easily handle busy shopping environments and a variety of retail formats, we continue to experience a deluge of interest from around the world.”
Zippin says that it is working with (unnamed) pilot customers who will be debuting stores powered by its checkout-free technology over the coming months. Stay tuned for an interview with the startup’s founder and CEO Krishna Motukuri, landing on RTIH this week.
