Smartphone key to unlocking Swedish store

|2 March 2016|

A Swedish IT specialist is leading a shopping revolution with his unstaffed store which uses technology to give customers 24 hour access.

The southern Swedish town of Viken is home to Robert IIijason’s pioneering shop. Customers access the shop by registering for it and downloading an app. They can then enter by themselves and scan items using a smartphone. Payment is made through a monthly invoicing structure.

He told AP: “My ambition is to spread this idea to other villages and small towns.”
