Did you know autonomous stores have the potential to nearly double profit margins compared to traditional retail stores? It’s true! And when 66% of shoppers say they’d spend more if it means their purchase will be more convenient, it’s no surprise that autonomous retail is growing at a rapid rate across the globe. In fact, the number of autonomous stores worldwide is expected to grow to 12,000 by 2027.
Convenience stores (c-stores), in particular, benefit greatly from implementing autonomous shopping solutions as:
- AI solutions enable automated inventory management, streamlined planograms, and fast transaction processing
- Retailers reduce the need for excess staff, eliminating high labor costs and optimizing staffing resources
- Customers enjoy a hassle-free, convenient, and cashierless shopping experience that is available 24/7

In our latest guide, we’re providing step-by-step instructions on how to do both seamlessly with AiFi.
