AllDay Supermarket First In PH To Roll Out 'Smart Carts'
AllDay Supermarket, the country’s fastest-growing supermarket operator, continues its tradition of innovation-first customer experiences by rolling out the Philippines’ first “smart carts” in its stores, a nod to its continuous effort to bring global best practices to the local supermarket experience.

AllDay’s smart carts are the latest addition to the chain’s growing collection of first-to-market innovations, including its Personal Shopper Service, and AllDay’s self-checkout counters—initiatives indicative of the market’s growing preference for an upgraded experience informed by emerging trends from all over the world.
“We’re excited to bring to our customers yet another innovation to make in-person grocery shopping even more intuitive and enjoyable,” says Camille Villar, AllDay Supermarket’s Vice Chairman.
“Our smart carts are a novel experience, and we are sure it will be an exciting experience for first-time users. This puts even more convenience and information about what they are buying in real-time, right at their fingertips. More importantly, introducing these smart carts helps raise the bar for the local supermarket landscape, driving home our point that Filipino consumers now prefer experiential shopping, and we are of course happy to deliver.”
AllDay’s smart carts are easy to use, and allow for even more customer autonomy, in-store. Customers need to simply place their desired items in the smart cart, which automatically scans the information of the selected item, immediately reflecting prices and other important information on the cart’s user interface.
As a customer continues his or her shopping trip, a running total is generated in real-time, allowing for them to monitor and compare against their budget, or their shopping list for that particular trip.
When a customer is ready to check out, the smart cart will automatically generate a QR code for their total purchase, which can be scanned at either AllDay’s self-checkout counters or simply handed over to AllDay’s trained cashiers for payment and check out.
Innovation, whether in-store or online, will always remain the beating heart of the AllDay experience.
The rollout of AllDay smart carts in the AllDay flagship store at Evia Lifestyle Center is a direct result of the constant evaluation of global trends and practices—which led to the chain’s introduction of the country’s first self-checkout kiosks and the pioneering Personal Shopper Service, initiatives that have earned regional acclaim from groups such as Euromonitor International.
