Giant Vending Machines Provide Groceries For Neighborhoods Without Local Stores
The Speedy Shop is an automated store selling toiletries and necessities like milk and eggs.
Developed by electrical engineer Peter Fox, the Speedy Shop is a large vending machine that sells a variety of items like toiletries, groceries like milk and eggs, kitchen items, pet food, and more.
The automated store was designed to cater to the residents of towns that have lost their local shops. The first machine recently opened in Clifton, Derbyshire, a town that lost its last local store 14 years ago.
The Speedy Shop accepts cash and credit cards and its stock is constantly monitored. The machine sends out an email when it is running low on stock. It also has built-in security features such as cameras and alarms to mitigate theft.
