MAPCO, based in Tennessee, has now opened its second checkout-free store in Nashville in partnership with technology provider Grabango.

Frederic Chaveyriat, CEO of MAPCO, said in a press release, "We’re thrilled to bring Grabango’s seamless checkout experience to additional Nashville customers, who want quick and efficient visits. … We are seeing an increasing number of our shoppers opt for this faster, convenient checkout option, furthering our commitment to offering MAPCO customers a Better Break when they shop in-store."

When visiting a Grabango-enabled store, customers can download the app and shop as normal. The app keeps track of the items the customer is selecting. Once shopping is complete, the customer scans a code and payment is synced within the app. The customer can walk out of the store without interacting with an employee or waiting in line. 

“We are excited to expand our relationship with MAPCO with a second Grabango-powered store and to bring checkout-free shopping to more of their shoppers,” said Grabango CEO and co-founder Will Glaser. “Grabango is a true retrofit solution that simplifies shopping without burdening the retailer. Shoppers can pay with a credit card, debit card or use their mobile wallet.”

According to the company, Grabango is a leading checkout-free technology for large-scale operations. It “doesn’t require shelf sensors, changes to store layout or product mix, and operates seamlessly in large-format stores.”

MAPCO has over 300 locations across Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Arkansas, Kentucky, Virginia and Mississippi, and it has been recognized for the second year in a row as a Top Workplace of Middle Tennessee.
