LAVAL, Quebec — Circle K has installed technology from Grabango, a provider of checkout-free technology for convenience stores and grocery stores, in a multi-store rollout in select Arizona Circle K c-stores. Grabango’s checkout-free experience is now available across six Circle K stores, one in Tucson and five in Marana.

“I’m thrilled to announce that we’re working with Circle K and its parent company, Alimentation Couche-Tard, on the largest rollout of checkout-free retrofits to date,” said Will Glaser, CEO of Grabango. “Couche-Tard is a sophisticated global partner that’s a leader in delivering technology to benefit its customers. Together, we’re fulfilling the promise of making convenience stores more convenient.”

With the expansion of coverage to five Giant Eagle GetGo stores in the Greater Pittsburgh area along with these Circle K stores in the west, Grabango’s checkout-free technology now reaches shoppers coast to coast.
