Grocery Retailer Salling Group expands e-grocery pickup offer with StrongPoint Grocery Lockers
February 2, 2022
StrongPoint, a leading retail technology provider, announces that Salling Group, the largest grocery retailer in Denmark, has ordered additional grocery lockers from StrongPoint as well as adding modules to their current locker installations from StrongPoint for their føtex chain.
StrongPoint has been working with Salling Group since 2019 when it first won a competitive tender for a pilot project for temperature-controlled click and collect grocery lockers. The initial pilot included lockers at five store locations. Following the success of the first roll-out Salling Group has decided to install StrongPoint grocery lockers in eight new locations and add additional capacity to their existing units as they continue to expand their e-grocery pickup offer.
“We have been piloting StrongPoint grocery lockers with our føtex chain which has been a great success. Therefore, we are now ready to expand the offering to even more stores in 2022 and continue building on our strong partnership with StrongPoint. Our customers love the option to pick up groceries in a flash, while for us we appreciate that we can fulfil orders extremely quickly which creates efficiency savings. The solution is easy to install and operate and fits perfectly into our strategy of serving our customers any way they want to shop online. We look forward to the expanded collaboration with StrongPoint and to bring grocery lockers to even more customers in Denmark,” said Kristoffer Schmidt Sørensen, Head of Omnichannel & Strategy, føtex.
“We are proud to continue partnering with Salling Group to further expand their e-grocery pickup offer. As the demand for e-groceries increases, existing grocery retailers have opportunities to leverage their store network by turning them into digital e-grocery pickup hubs. With grocery lockers they have the benefit of providing a pickup solution at speed and scale that is convenient and efficient for both customers and retail staff. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Salling Group to expand and scale their e-grocery offer,” said Jacob Tveraabak, StrongPoint CEO.
