CVS Pharmacy plans to launch automated retail vending machines stocked with products typically sold at its stores, according to a company press release.
The vending machines will be stocked with more than 70 products, including health and beauty items, vitamins and supplements and healthy snacks and beverages.
Judy Sansone, vice president of Front Store Business and Chief Merchant at CVS Pharmacy says it’s a way to combine convenience and innovation to better serve customers.
“Our new CVS Pharmacy vending machine program allows us to extend that convenience beyond our brick-and-mortar locations to offer customers on-the-go essentials in the locations where they often need them most, like airports, hotels and other transportation hubs.”
The wheelchair accessible machines will feature a 22 in. multi-touchscreen, high resolution images with product information and a QR code reader to read barcodes and promotional codes.
