Juxta has unveiled an exciting innovation for on-the-go shopping, the Juxta Nomad shop, designed to enhance the experience of EV drivers and passengers. These autonomous shops offer a convenient way to purchase food and drinks while waiting for your vehicle to charge. The process is simple, as customers can access the Juxta Nomad with just a debit or credit card, whether physically carried or stored digitally on their smartphone or smartwatch.
A Selection to Satisfy Every Craving
Once inside, customers are greeted with a variety of options, ranging from snacks and sandwiches to hot drinks and fresh fruit. What’s unique is that the selection varies based on each Nomad’s location and customer purchase data. For instance, Nomads located near remote EV charging points may prioritize drinks and snacks for drivers, while those closer to urban areas might stock larger items like ready-made meals for shoppers to enjoy at home.
Smart Technology Enhances the Experience
Inside the Nomad, advanced technology is at play. Shelf and cabinet sensors instantly detect when an item is picked up, while cameras discreetly identify shoppers. All this data is seamlessly processed in the cloud, creating a digital shopping basket for each customer. Even if a family or group enters the store, Juxta’s AI technology effortlessly consolidates their purchases.
Compliance and Age-Restricted Items
Juxta’s commitment to compliance is notable. Where legislation permits, their shopping technology allows for the retail of age-restricted items such as alcohol or cigarettes. These items are stored in specific age-verified fridges and dispensers, only to be released after cameras confirm the buyer’s age.
Customers have flexibility when it comes to checkout. They can verify their purchases on a large touch screen before exiting the store. However, for those in a hurry, a quick exit is possible. Juxta’s technology records their purchases and handles the payment process, ensuring a seamless experience.
The Road Ahead for Juxta Nomad
Juxta has already conducted a successful trial of its first autonomous Nomad in North Carolina, with plans to deploy four more customer Nomads in the US later this year. Additionally, they’re in advanced discussions with European customers, aiming to introduce their first Nomads in 2024.
Supporting EV Charging Evolution
JUXTA, a global technology and micro-convenience retail store provider, is on a mission to assist station operators transitioning from traditional fuel stations to EV charging points. They collaborate with established retail brands to extend their reach beyond fuel pumps, enhancing the charging station experience and driving growth.
Partnerships for Convenience
Juxta Nomad collaborates with retailers seeking to elevate their convenience offerings or serve customers in unique locations, such as music festivals. For instance, Colorado-based retailer Choice Market has joined forces with Juxta Nomad, bringing the on-the-go shopping convenience to festivalgoers before establishing a permanent presence in Denver.
Efficiency and Data-Driven Retail
Juxta Nomads are fully equipped and portable, with a quick setup time of just 12 hours. Automatic payment technology streamlines the shopping process, and the Juxta dashboard provides comprehensive data for operators to fine-tune their retail strategy and offers.
A Profitable Retail Format
In essence, the Juxta Nomad represents a revolutionary approach to convenience. It offers a profitable per-square-foot retail format, empowering customers with real-time data to optimize their retail strategy, reduce waste, and enhance profitability.
Juxta introduces the Juxta Nomad, an autonomous shop at EV charging stations, offering a wide range of products and seamless checkout options. The company is expanding globally, with plans to introduce Nomads in Europe in 2024. Juxta Nomad partners with retailers to enhance convenience offerings and provides valuable data for optimized retail strategies.
