BERKELEY, Calif.—Chevron is launching checkout-free shopping at Chevron’s ExtraMile store in San Ramon, California, by partnering with Grabango. Customers can now grab their items, skip the line and walk out through the convenient in-store contactless checkout.

“We’re always looking to improve the experiences of our valued ExtraMile shoppers,” said Bob Stolz, general manager of Chevron Stations. “That’s why we’re excited to work with Grabango to pilot their one-second-checkout technology at our Bollinger Canyon station.”

Grabango’s computer-vision technology eliminates lines and saves time. It’s a fully contactless experience, allowing shoppers to select any non-age-restricted product in the store and then exit without waiting in line to checkout. Payment is automatically completed through the Grabango app.

“We’re grateful to be working with one of the greatest consumer brands in the world to bring checkout-free to more shoppers,” said Will Glaser, CEO and founder of Grabango. “Grabango is honored to help Chevron usher in the future of physical retail shopping.”

Last December, bp partnered with Grabango to integrate checkout-free technology into seven ampm stores in Northern California and three Amoco locations in Western Pennsylvania. MAPCO also is launching checkout-free services in two Tennessee stores with Grabango. In 2020, Grabango and Giant Eagle launched Grabango’s checkout-free system at a GetGo Café+Market in Pittsburgh.
