Retail kiosks integrate online, self-service shopping options

Demand is growing for the integration of online and self-service stores, according to Corona, Calif.-based AVT Inc., a developer of custom kiosks, vending machines and automated retailing.

AVT’s new Micro-Stores, which will be shipped out in the third quarter, combine kiosks with Internet retail options, the company said in an announcement.

For example, if a kiosk doesn’t have a customer’s preferred color or size, a touchscreen panel provides instant access to online shopping options, where orders can be shipped to the customer’s residence or to a retail location.

Cisco Systems research estimates the Micro-Stores to be a $7 billion revenue venture with return on investment within two years, the announcement said.

According to AVT, the stores have little overhead and provide unlimited access to merchandise, which can be an incentive for entrepreneurs wanting to open new businesses.

“Our customers have been asking for a more advanced micro-store, with integration to online shopping channels,” AVT founder and Chairman Shannon Illingworth said. “Our new automated platform provides business owners and entrepreneurs with the most advanced and effective system in the world, while giving customers the most engaging and comprehensive shopping experience.”

Micro-Stores can be placed in nearly any location, ATV said, such as parks, universities, airports, hotels and stadiums.  Media/News/Publishing
