Auchan Minute shops to roll out in China
“Several hundred” Auchan Minute shops without checkout counters are planned for China by year’s end.
Customers enter by scanning a code via the WeChat app. After products are scanned, they are added to a virtual cart. The customer then pays via AliPay or WeChat Pay.
Every Auchan Minute will offer 500 products 24 hours a day.
Founded in 1961, Auchan is France’s second-largest retail group after Carrefour.
