WAUKESHA — Meijer will expand its “Shop & Scan” technology to all of its Wisconsin stores, giving customers the ability to scan bar codes on items via the Meijer Mobile App.

Meijer operates 11 stores in the state, including in West Bend and Waukesha.

A running total of items purchased is viewable as the customer shops throughout the store, scanning and bagging their groceries. Once a customer has completed her shopping, she simply scans her phone at a self-checkout lane and pays, making the checkout experience quick and easy.

“We’re all challenged by time and busy schedules, so Shop & Scan allows customers the opportunity to truly be in control of their shopping trip, from the moment they walk in our stores to the minute they walk out,” said Gerald Melville, Meijer regional vice president. “Customers are appreciative of the simplicity of scanning and bagging as they go because they can save time and avoid lines, speeding up their checkout experience.”

Melville said the Meijer Mobile App has been downloaded more than 1.1 million times since the initial Shop & Scan pilot launch in Michigan last year. During that time, more than 80 percent of Meijer customers have repeatedly used the Shop & Scan app as part of their shopping experience. The Shop & Scan service is available at 108 Meijer stores in Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana.

Meijer Shop & Scan technology works via the free Meijer Mobile App that customers can download through the Apple or Android App stores.
