Moscow, 2 August 2019 – X5 Retail Group, a leading Russian food retailer, has opened its 15,500th store, which is a large-format Perekrestok store. This pilot store, which is the first of its kind in Moscow, is located on Prospect Andropova.
The supermarket boasts over 3,500 sq m of selling space, a product range of around 20,000 SKUs and a staff of 161 people.
The new Perekrestok pays special attention to new technologies and innovations, with four self-checkout systems available alongside 21 traditional checkout tills and a pilot video monitoring system in place to monitor queues, prevent congestion during peak hours, and manage stores personnel more efficiently. The new store is also one of the first in the Perekrestok format to use electronic price tags on the shelves for nearly all items.
What’s more, the store’s customers can self-scan their purchases with a handheld scanner before placing them in the basket.
The supermarket also features Moscow’s first Click & Collect point for Perekrestok.ru, where shoppers can pick up their online orders, which are processed in-store. The nearly 170 sq m pick-up point has three storage zones – for frozen goods, fresh products (meat, dairy, fruit and vegetables), groceries and beverages. Thanks to the newly launched Click & Collect system, shoppers are now able to order alcoholic drinks at Perekrestok.ru and collect them at the pick-up point after showing their ID (passport).
