Holiday Oil Co., a convenience store retailer with 67 locations in Utah, has selected Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s Passport Express Lane self-checkout system to ease labor challenges and create a fast, frictionless shopping experience, according to a press release.
The brand will outfit its entire network with Express Lane kiosks to allow employees to focus on more complex tasks.
“Self-checkout solves challenges on both sides of the front counter,” Jay Cahoon, director of fuel systems, said in the press release. “For employees, it helps balance out staffing shortages and maintain store standards. For customers, it provides the checkout options they’ve come to expect from other retail environments. Holiday Oil is committed to providing a speedy, positive customer experience and Express Lane helps us maintain that standard.”
Express Lane is designed specifically for c-stores, capable of handling the unique retail scenarios of the convenience store industry including the sale of age-restricted items and fuel.
