retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Houston Business Journal reports that Greek yogurt manufacturer Chobani, which operates two yogurt in New York City, plans to open a third one. In Houston, Texas. In a Walmart Supercenter. According to the story, "Many items on the Mediterranean-inspired menu include the brand’s Greek yogurt, including salad dressings, smoothies and more."

The new Supercenter also "will be among the first in the U.S. to include a variety of the company’s new features. Most notably, it will be the company’s third store to utilize its new Scan & Go app. So far, the app can be used at one location in Arkansas and a store in Florida that opened late last month. The new app will allow customers to scan items on their phone while shopping in the store and pay for them instantly, skipping the checkout process."
