New Walmart Supercentre in Longueuil debuts Scan & Go technology
MONTREAL -- This morning, Walmart Canada unveiled its brand new Montérégie Supercentre, located at 1999, boulevard Roland-Therrien, in Longueuil. The event also served as the official launch for the first prototype store in Quebec featuring many innovations including Scan & Go, as well as, the new grocery pickup service.
"We are pleased to offer our Montérégie customers a new Supercentre, which will allow them to enjoy an enhanced, more convenient and faster shopping experience. This type of store clearly shows how we listen to our customers and want to continuously improve and expand our offering in order to keep being at the forefront of a changing retail landscape," stated Cyrille Ballereau, vice-president of operations for Eastern Canada.
A totally renewed and redefined shopping experience
The Longueuil prototype will be the first store in Quebec to use the Scan & Go technology. This service will allow customers to pick up a portable barcode scanner as soon as they enter the store. Customers can then start shopping while scanning the items they wish to purchase as they go along. Their itemized receipt will instantly be displayed on the portable scanner, allowing them to keep track of their budget. Once at the checkout, all the customers need to do is proceed with the payment.
"Helping our customers save money every week is a priority for Walmart. We are happy to be able to provide a full range of quality products and fresh foods, making it possible for our customers to buy their every essentials and their groceries at low prices and in one place," stated Valérie Clermont, store manager.
