The 48,440 sq ft flagship is the first to feature new technology such as automated order and collection points and a self-checkout area.

The click-and-collect area in Stratford features two automated online order collection points serviced by two mini warehouses, able to handle 2,400 orders simultaneously, which run via robotic arms.

The system’s barcode reader scans QR or PIN codes that customers receive when they place orders online.

Behind the pick-up point, a robotic arm collects trays and organises the packages optimally according to their size, delivering orders for customers to collect in seconds.
