In one of its retail locations in Germany, fashion retailer Solebox is now using robots to staff its back shoe stockroom. A bot is able to pick out a customer's preferred size and style and make a delivery to the shop floor so that a consumer may try on a desired piece of footwear.
Typically, shoe stockrooms are the mysterious places that retail employees disappear to for a time, but Solebox's retail environment makes this functional back room a feature with a glass panel. This display allows consumers to see the incredible robot at work.
This Shoebox store sets a new precedent for retailers who deal in shoes and beyond. As well as helping to automate a simple task, Solebox transforms the experience of fetching shoes into a theatrical retail event.
