What help can I get along my journey?

Employees throughout the store wearing ‘Smart Cart Ambassador’ buttons can assist you. Additionally, pressing HELP on the screen will capture our Ambassadors attention.

What do the lights on the Smart Cart represent?

We’ve added LED lights on our carts to help identify your stage in the shopping journey. One colour means you’ve just gotten started, and another means you’ve requested some help.

What technology makes the Smart Cart so smart?

Smart Carts use sensor fusion technology to identify items you shop for as you go to help make your checkout seamless.

How can I return an item I purchased while using a Smart Cart?

Same way as if you used a traditional check out method: simply bring your item and proof of purchase (digital receipt) to the customer service desk to receive your refund.

Can I purchase alcohol when using a Smart Cart?

Yes. If alcohol is on your bill, you’ll be prompted to find an Front End Employee to validate your age once you tap the “checkout” button on your cart’s screen.

How do I get my receipt?

Once you pay, you can send yourself a digital receipt by entering your email or phone number.

How can I remove an item from my cart?

Simply tap the trash button next to the item, then remove it from the cart.

What if an item doesn’t have a barcode?

Simply tap “add produce/deli” and then search by entering the PLU number or product name. Weight your item in the cart and go.
