Photographed: December 28, 2021Paramus not too long ago. Warrington is extremely similar to Paramus, although it's equipped with the Dash Carts rather than the Just Walk Out system. More on that shortly. This building was built around 2000 as a Genuardi's, which was sold to GIANT before the rest of the chain was in 2010. GIANT closed in 2013, and the space sat vacant for a long time before Amazon Fresh came in.
ShopRite. Does the e-commerce aspect make up for that?
I came away with the same impression as from Paramus -- the technology is innovative but I'm not convinced it's necessary, and the rest of the store's execution just doesn't to me make the experience worth it. It doesn't appear that the chain is doing particularly well these days, either, unfortunately. But I'm still glad I got to see an example of each type of Amazon Fresh checkout technology! Tomorrow we'll be seeing something completely different -- a smaller, independent natural food store outside Doylestown about five miles north on The Independent Edition!
