After a positive trial of its automated kiosk in Oklahoma, Walmart is testing a larger version in its Sherman, Texas location, allowing customers to order ahead and pick up their groceries by scanning a barcode

As shoppers increasingly value speedy and hassle-free checkout, retailers have been responding by experimenting with cashierless kiosks. Walmart has been one of the most aggressive in trialing the automated transaction technology, and after initial success, the retailer is expanding its testing with a new machine in Sherman, Texas.

The service aims to provide the latest in fast and easy convenience, allowing customers who place an online order of over $30 to request to have their groceries packed and placed in the kiosk. Then customers can simply scan their barcode upon arrival to the store and retrieve their groceries within one minute.

While the retailer previously tested the initiative in Oklahoma, the new Texas kiosk is able to hold many more grocery orders. Walmart hopes that its development of innovative ways to facilitate customer transactions will help it continue to outpace its competition when it comes to pickup orders. If consumers respond well to the test, the retailer has the ability to quickly integrate the service into stores around the country.
