ShelfX seeks partners to test unattended pop-up stores
ShelfX, an automated merchandising and inventorying machine that uses weight-sensing shelves and RFID technology, is looking to test a new concept: a shipping container that unfolds into an unattended retail store, according to a press release.
"We are looking for companies interested in trying our new pop-up store," ShelfX CEO Ran Margalit said in the release.
"The new air conditioned pop-up store concept encapsulates six fridges, two freezers and a coffee machine," Margalit said. "Additionally, electrical sliding doors open with a swipe of a credit card or usage of our app. The container will include safety features like 24x7 cameras and outdoors lights to create a welcoming environment."
The pop-up store is designed as a 24/7 solution for outdoor and sports events, festivals and more. It also lets small towns add a fast 24/7 c-store solution where there are not enough people to support a larger one.
