CARMI, Ill. —Huck’s Market is bringing Skip’s new self-checkout kiosk to the 124 locations it operates across Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky and Tennessee. This agreement comes after a pilot program that tested the new kiosk at select locations.
- Martin & Bayley Inc., the Carmi, Ill.-based operator of Huck’s Market, is No. 58 on CSP’s 2021 Top 202 ranking of convenience stores by store count.
Last April, Huck’s adopted Skip’s mobile checkout application for its locations.
“In our field tests, Skip’s kiosks comprised 35% of net/qualified transactions and 15% of total store transactions,” said Jon Bunch, director of marketing and business development for Huck’s, “But what really set Skip apart was the convenience. When we started testing their kiosk, it felt like all we had to do was plug it in and it was ready to go.”
The kiosk is self-installing, meaning there will be no need for new construction at any of the sites during the rollout. Additionally, it uses cloud monitoring and troubleshooting to detect and solve software issues in real-time, eliminating the need for maintenance calls and highly specialized staff training.
“We are proud to continue our relationship with Huck’s,” said Chase Thomason, CEO of Skip. “They have been vocal advocates for our mobile checkout technology and are excited to include them in our initial rollout for our new self-checkout solutions.”
Skip’s kiosk is modular, allowing for several different configurations based on a retailer’s available floor and counter space.
Skip, Salt Lake City, is providing cloud-based mobile and kiosk checkout products to c-stores and other small-format retailers through its suite of checkout technologies.
