QuikTrip Corp., opened a non-gasoline convenience store with Amazon’s no-checkout “just walk out” technology in the BOK Tower at One Williams Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the company announced.
“We are excited to expand our presence in Tulsa with our second non-gas location nationwide, and we look forward to introducing this new innovative store experience to the downtown Tulsa community,” said Aisha Jefferson-Smith, QuikTrip’s corporate communications manager. "Amazon’s ‘just walk out’ technology is designed to eliminate checkout lines, enabling guests to enjoy a frictionless shopping experience and get what they need quickly.”
The technology is in use at more than 40 Amazon Fresh grocery locations, as well as at the retailer's Amazon Go convenience-store concept. The first Amazon Fresh opened about two years ago in Woodland Hills, California.
Amazon's "just walk out" platform is also found at some stadiums, airports and casinos.
BOK Tower customers can enjoy QT snacks and meal replacements, including the Nitro Coffee Station with freshly brewed coffee, as well as its complete menu of grab-and-go items like fresh doughnuts, salads, wraps and QT’s pizza by the slice. QT Kitchens customer favorites include mac and cheese, breakfast tacos, hardwood smoked BBQ sandwiches and more.
