QUINCY, Mass. — Stop & Shop here is extending the accessibility of its Scan It! mobile app that allows customers to use their mobile device to scan, tally and bag groceries, to users of many Android devices.
The Scan It! mobile app was initially introduced in June for use with the iPhone in three stores. It's now compatible with 21 locations and will roll out to another 23 in the coming weeks.
The app that works with a consumer's personal device provides the same functionality as Scan It! handheld devices provided by Stop & Shop in 350 stores. Scan It! offers personalized and specific offers to shoppers based on purchase history and location in the store.
"We are excited to introduce our in-store mobile shopping experience to more Stop & Shop stores and Android customers, given the positive feedback we've received from customers that have used SCAN IT! Mobile and enjoy the ability to shop and scan with their smartphone," said Mark McGowan, president, Stop & Shop New England Division, in a statement.
