Valora is a retail holding company with over 2,800 small-scale outlets located at highly frequented sites in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
AiFi is helping Valora launch a new retail format in Switzerland – the
k kiosk box. Initially designed as a test, the shop concept aims to make shopping even more convenient and will be deployed in locations where previously there had been no or very few convenience shopping offerings.
Equipped with the k kiosk box app, customers will be able to walk into the store, pick up the products from the shelves and leave – without having to wait at all. Unlike Valora’s planned convenience concept avec box which will be launched in spring 2019 and where the shopping process also uses an app, customers will not have to scan the products when shopping in the k kiosk box, speeding up the process even further.
The k kiosk box concept will allow Valora to operate kiosk stores at locations where previously there had been no or very few convenience shopping offerings. The k kiosk box is intended to remain open for as long as permitted by law or the landlord – ideally on a 24/7 basis. The new shop measures approximately 20 square metres and offers the standard kiosk range plus fresh food products.
“We are excited to develop this new shopping experience. With the k kiosk box, we take convenience to the next level making it easier and faster for customers to get what they need.”
