Push Your Digital Cart Around the Virtual Supermarket and Check Out with Real Stuff

I love grocery shopping, but I don’t like having to do all the heavy lifting. I have this mentality where more is better and less is bad, which means I’m a huge sucker for the bulk or discounted aisles where the supersized versions of most products are on display.

A lot of people probably share the same sentiments when it comes to getting groceries, because it was enough to convince one company to launch a completely virtual supermarket, which displays ample products, but does away with the need to carry them around.

First Virtual Supermarket
A little while back, we mentioned a small virtual shop opened by Tesco/Homeplus in Korea, and apparently the idea has taken off in the country. Another, larger virtual store recently opened in Seoul, where all shoppers have to do is point their phones at the QR code to scan it to put an item into their virtual cart for home delivery.

First Virtual Supermarket

The store, which is located at the┬áSeoulleung subway station, offers approximately 500 different items on its shelves. The obvious downside is that you can’t check or inspect products as you normally would before putting them in your cart. One of the trade-offs for convenience, I guess.

What do you think?
