30 Self-Serve Retail Innovations

From Cashless Cafes to Shoppable Department Store Screens

— October 29, 2018 — Business
These digital signage innovations range from self-serve grocer concepts to shoppable department store screens. Standouts in the realm of cashless retail include a new Starbucks cafe concept in South Korea which exclusively accepts mobile orders and Walt Disney World's recent test of a cash-free resort concept at its Animal Kingdom Lodge location.

When it comes to immersive retail that goes beyond cashless payment, notable examples include Harvey Nichols' in-store touchscreens which boast unique ads like videos that are actually shoppable by visitors. Additionally, examples like beauty brand SK-II's Smart Store pair immersive tochscreen signage -- interactive walls that act as digital art canvases for visitors -- with intuitive payment bracelets for a seamless shopping experience.
