Nourish + Bloom Market to offer contactless shopping, robotic delivery service and organic products
Trilith officially opened Nourish + Bloom Market on January 21, 2022 in the community’s burgeoning Town Centre retail district. This contactless grocery store offering robotic delivery services and a gourmet bistro is the first Black-owned, autonomous grocery store to open in the world, in addition to being the first autonomous grocery store to open in the South.
You will be able to enter the store, pick up and pay for items, all through an app. The groundbreaking technology uses measuring scale shelfs, along with their extensive network of cameras to carry out you to carry out your shopping, stress free!
“This type of technology will revolutionize grocery shopping, and we’re over the moon to be the first to introduce this technology in the South,” owners Jamie and Jilea Hemmings said. “Nourish + Bloom Market grew out of a necessity for our family and sprouted into a way to increase access to healthy, organic foods for shoppers.”
The store stocks locally sourced craft items in all departments. So you can expect a gourmet shopping experience, with the planet and organic produce at the forefront of their mission. They announced in a recent press release, “Following both Trilith’s and Nourish + Bloom Market’s emphasis on sustainability, all food and personal care items are curated with the highest standards and priority is given to local brands to reduce the carbon footprint.”
But what’s extra special about this place is the delivery robots, who all have a couple of responsibilities to care for.
They continue, “The technology at Nourish + Bloom also includes delivery robots for residents of Trilith. These highly advanced bots will deliver a variety of food and packages with the ability to regulate hot and cold temperatures. In addition to their high-tech learning abilities, robotic deliverers use digital facial expressions and sounds to add an element of fun and opportunities for interactions.”
Nourish + Bloom Market will open on January 21, and is located in Trilith’s Town Center. Visit their website, here.
