Unstaffed Convenience

Grocers opt for staff-less options that simplify store layouts

Implications - Unstaffed grocers provide two distinctions – tech-enhanced convenience and a restructuring of how the layouts of these traditional spaces are designed. With staff-less grocers comes a crucial curation and simplification of retail displays, as customers can no longer seek out the assistance of employees in order to find and complete their purchases. The inevitable reforms associated with this shift set a precedent for how other retail spaces can redesign store layouts in a way that best suits the needs of customers.
