Hi tech-driven Tariq Halal store to open in Stratford
Tariq Halal is set to launch, what it says is a unique, state of the art, tech-driven store in Stratford Shopping Centre.
The butcher brand’s next generation store data-driven AI promises to deliver a unique supermarket experience in east London.
Gone will be the days of waiting, queueing and barcode-scanning replaced instead by ‘touch technology’ and e-shelf labelling
The company says the new technology will provide customers with a tailor-driven shopping experience based on their personal spending habits, and the luxury of time to shop at their own leisure.
To meet these objectives, Tariq Halal has invested £250,000 in importing cutting-edge equipment from Japan, Taiwan and China to develop a shop that is fully interlinked and networked.
The brand will combine specially trained butchers with the introduction of hi-tech scales, terminals, self-serve kiosks and click-and-collect services to bring the butcher’s store into the 21st century.
“This will be just the beginning of a next generation of data-driven AI butchers’ stores utilising the latest technology to provide an unparalleled shopping experience, which we hope will win back the trust of our regular supermarket meat shoppers,” said Tariq Halal partner Shukur Ali.
“More importantly, we will have a system in place, with specifically trained butchers, that maintains the highest standards of hygiene in order to demonstrate just how clean, clinical and immaculate Halal butchers’ shops can be,” he added.
With its data-gathering capability, the store aims to then be able to acquire the relevant knowledge and understanding needed to provide customers with a fast and convenient service.
