Robotic C-Stores to Hit Oklahoma City

Shop24 Partners with Total Express 24-7 to expand concept

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Shop24 is expanding to the Oklahoma City metropolitan area, with more than five locations already selected, it said. Total Express 24-7 LLC, an Oklahoma owned and operated corporation, is excited to be part of bringing the Shop24 advantage to Oklahoma, said the company.

The Shop24 ultra-convenience store is a self-contained, refrigerated and robotic c-store designed to enable 24/7/365 consumer purchasing. Originally operated in Europe and the U.S. East Coast, units have opened in California, Ohio, Dallas and Philadelphia, among other locations (see Related Content below for previous CSP Daily News coverage).

Shop24 dispenses a variety of items such as snacks, cleaning supplies, medicine and even full meals closer to the customer and in a fraction of the time it takes to go to and shop at a traditional c-store, according to the company.

The more than nine-foot-tall machine offers up to 200 traditional c-store items ranging in weight from less than one ounce to eight pounds.

Shop24 accepts different methods of payment including cash, credit cards, debit cards, campus dining cards, Flex Cards and supplemental nutrition assistance program (SNAP) cards 24 hours a day.

"We are extremely thrilled to be a part of the placement of these amazing machines around Oklahoma," said Ty T. Hartwig of Total Express 24-7. "Convenience is just one of the benefits we are seeing with these machines."
