AiFi, a provider of an automated, self-service store, is on track to deploy 330 new and retrofitted autonomous stores by the end of 2021, according to a press release.
AiFi's OASIS, the Orchestrated Autonomous Store Infrastructure and Services, has already deployed 10 stores in a variety of sizes in Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, San Antonio, Amsterdam, Dusseldorf, Paris, Poznan and Shanghai.
In addition to the previously reported partnerships with Albert Heijn, Carrefour, Żabka and Loop Neighborhood, AiFi is also deploying autonomous stores with several companies listed among the top 10 grocery retailers.
The 330 AiFi OASIS-based autonomous stores range from 800-square-foot convenience stores and travel shops to 10,000-square-foot grocery stores.
"With the onset of COVID-19, the need is even more urgent for a contactless and autonomous retail store where you can shop and feel safe in a physical environment," Steve Gu, CEO and co-founder, said in the press release.
