24/7 convenience shopping at Tegut Teo

Being able to do your grocery shopping 24/7? Or get your most essential groceries at a mini store? In big cities, people are not unfamiliar with this. Many large supermarkets have both large and small stores in cities, where customers can do their shopping at any time. In the countryside, it's different. There, customers drive further to do all their shopping at a large supermarket during traditional opening hours. Tegut is breathing new life into an "old market" with its latest shopping concept: Tegut Teo. In these new neighborhood supermarkets, rural customers can buy and checkout their most essential groceries 24/7. Pan Oston helped Tegut develop a checkout system that suited these new and innovative mini-stores.

The smallest supermarket in Germany

Tegut Teo stores are not big. On the contrary, they are very small and customers can only do their everyday shopping here. A Tegut Teo has about 1,000 products, while a large supermarket has about 25,000 product. Tegut wanted to fill as much space of the store as possible with these products. Therefore, the checkout area had to be as small as possible. Despite this, the checkout area had to be customer-friendly. In the Tegut Teo stores you will therefore find the ESSENCE kiosk; a self-scanning solution with a very small footprint. This ensures that the retail area of the mini stores is used in the best possible way!

The small, but important details

The checkout area may be small, but it is an important point in Tegut Teo stores. This is because there are no staff in the store. Customers are thus entirely responsible for the checkout process, and a kiosk allows Tegut to properly guide its customers in this regard. The ESSENCE kiosk fits well with the rest of the Tegut Teo store through its modular and customized design; the red color of Tegut is clearly reflected in the kiosk and also the software of partner Snabble fits well with the corporate identity of the supermarket chain.

Intuitive and flexible

The ESSENCE kiosk fits well with the new store concept of Tegut as it helps customers through the checkout process in an intuitive way. The kiosk fits perfectly into Tegut Teo's customer journey and ensures that customers can pay for their groceries quickly and easily. Snabble's software guides customers step by step with the scanning and checkout of their groceries. For example, customers can enter the store through an app, use the same app to scan their products and checkout immediately. Or customers can scan and checkout their products at the self-scanning kiosk. In addition, the ESSENCE kiosk is also very flexible. This means that Pan Oston has developed the kiosk in such a way that it perfectly suits Tegut's needs.

Tegut (Teo): An award winning retail concept

Tegut Teo is a new concept from the German supermarket chain Tegut. Although Teo is still a pilot, Tegut has now opened its fifth mini supermarket and many more Teo's are on the way. Tegut's concept is very innovative; to open a Tegut Teo one only needs electricity and internet. Tegut's new concept is intended to fill the "gap" in villages and remote areas or in industrial parks and university campuses. This way, people in these places, where there are often no shopping facilities, can still do their shopping easily and quickly. Tegut's new concept seems promising; it has already won several awards, including Store of the Year 2021 in Germany.
