First Take&Go store openes in Poznan

post-image

On 10 September in Poznan the first Take&Go store was opened. This is a new format of unmanned grocery stores, developed by Surge Cloud. Thanks to advanced technological solutions, customers do not have to self-service checkout – a special system connected with the Take&Go application in a smartphone does it for them.

Number of unmanned shops is growing

Take&Go is not the first unmanned shop in Poland – the first one was Bio Family Supermarket in Poznan, where since October 2018 you can shop around the clock – the shop is opened thanks to a special card or application and customers use automatic cash registers. However, Take&Go is distinguished by its technological advancement – it is a cashierless store. This solution is much closer to the American Amazon Go.

No more free plastic bags at stores in Poland

post-image

Poles started to pay for some disposable plastic bags in shops in January 2018. At present, all plastic bags, with the exception of thin disposable bags for packing bread and vegetables, are paid for. The fees are valid from 1 September 2019.

The environmental effects of reducing the use of plastic bags were not achieved because, as the Ministry of the Environment says, some shops started to deliver bags over 50 micrometers thick to their customers.
