Grocery chains including Kroger, Wegmans, Bashas’, and Fry’s Food Stores are deploying self-service photo printing solutions.

Launched by photo products and services provider Kodak Moments, Kodak Moments To Go photo printing stations feature touch-free printing and payment functionality. Kodak Moments owns and operates the equipment, including marketing, replenishment and service, to provide a labor-free, self-service solution. By providing a small footprint location and power, retailers receive a revenue share from sales generated.

Kodak Moments To Go stations are currently available in-store at several retail partners across the country, such as select Kroger, Wegmans, Bashas’, and Fry’s locations in states including Arizona, Kentucky, and New York. Consumers can use their mobile devices to shop and create photo print orders from anywhere, then pick up and pay for photos from the kiosk during their next shopping trip, touch-free. The solution also allows users to create their photo products directly at the kiosk if they choose.

Retailers including CVS and Independent Pharmacy Cooperative have previously implemented “buy online print in store” technology from Kodak Moments.
 
“As the industry is continually evolving to keep up with changing consumer demands, our team developed an intuitive solution that enables retailers to deliver on the wants and needs of the modern shopper,” said Nicki Zongrone, president of Kodak Moments. “Kodak Moments To Go gives retailers a low-risk way to provide a value-added experiential service that is innovative in the marketplace.”
