QUINCY, Mass. — Stop & Shop announced that it has expanded the availability of its SCAN IT! Mobile shopping app.
First introduced last June for iPhone 3GS and 4G in three stores, SCAN IT! Mobile is now also available for many Android devices which will double the reach of customers, the company said. In addition, the pilot will expand to an additional 42 Stop & Shop stores in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.
"We are excited to introduce our in-store mobile shopping experience to more Stop & Shop stores and Android customers, given the positive feedback we've received from customers that have used SCAN IT! Mobile and enjoy the ability to shop and scan with their smartphone," said Mark McGowan, president Stop & Shop New England Division. "From quick convenience trips to full grocery shops, SCAN IT! Mobile allows customers to scan their own items, bag as they go, and see a running total of their purchases, making the shopping experience even more valuable for our on-the-go customers."
Stop & Shop first announced the SCAN IT! Mobile pilot in three Massachusetts Stop & Shop stores in Quincy (65 Newport Ave.), Braintree (300 Grove St.), and Plymouth (127 Samoset St/Rte. 44).
With this recent expansion, the app is currently available in an additional 19 stores and is being rolled out to another 23 stores in the coming weeks. By the end of 2011, no fewer than 45 Stop & Shop supermarkets will be fully operational with SCAN IT! Mobile.
