SALT LAKE CITY Huck’s Market has extended its partnership with contactless checkout provider Skip through 2021. The decision comes thanks to a marked increase in monthly active shoppers at Huck’s since implementing Skip’s Mobile checkout technology at all 124 of its locations in April last year.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many retailers to look for new checkout options to help keep shoppers safe. In examining the options, Huck’s ultimately decided to partner with Skip because of its suite of products, including their Mobile Checkout option.

Huck’s has seen a rise in its monthly active shopper numbers since adopting Skip’s Mobile Checkout technology in its stores. Part of this success comes thanks to the usage and enthusiasm shown by store clerks during the rollout and the clerks’ eagerness to recommend the app to their customers, according to Huck’s.

“Our employees fell in love with Skip once they started using the app,” said Jon Bunch, director of marketing business development. “They became advocates for it.”

Because of the positive response, Huck’s has decided to continue its partnership with Skip through 2021.

“In a tough year for brick-and-mortar stores, we’re proud to be able to help out Huck’s by providing the safest shopping option, giving peace of mind to their shoppers and clerks.” says Chase Thomason, CEO of Skip.

Salt Lake City-based Skip is a startup providing frictionless checkout products, including Mobile Checkout to the convenience store, grocery, and small-format retail industries through its suite of mobile apps.

Martin & Bailey Inc. operates Huck's c-stores in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky and Tennessee. The Carmi, Ill.-based company is No. 58 on CSP's 2020 Top 202 ranking of c-store chains by size.
