Published in CSP Daily News

Automated convenience store installation will be third in California

POMONA, Calif. -- Cal Poly Pomona Foundation Inc. (CPPF) has recently elected to place a Shop24 automated convenience store at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (Cal Poly Pomona), the second largest polytechnic school in the United States.

Shop24 carries up to 200 items including cleaning supplies and large packaged goods.

The store will be placed at University Village, a CPPF-operated student housing facility that caters to more than1,300 students.

"Shop24 will allow us to serve the residents at the University Village who have not had access to any food services within a reasonable walking distance before. They are very excited about our partnership with Shop24. The integration of our campus card will also allow us to gain better penetration of our Bronco Bucks program in that location," said Aaron Neilson, interim director of dining services.

Installation is scheduled for Sept. 2013, the school said.

Cal Poly Pomona Foundation Inc. is a Section 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that operates as a recognized auxiliary of the California State University.

A unit opened at San Francisco State University (SFSU) in July. The first unit in California opened at Cal State Fullerton in Nov. 2010.

Westerville, Ohio-based Shop24 is the market-leading, self-contained, totally automated and refrigerated convenience store designed to enable 24/7 accessible consumer purchasing. Easy, safe, reliable and immediate, a Shop24 automated convenience store delivers more than 200 items ranging in weight from one ounce to 10 pounds in a well-lit, security camera monitored environment.
