Big Y customers can now check out on their phone and skip the line at the cash register.

Big Y is one of the largest independently owned supermarket chains in New England, operating almost 80 stores throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts. The grocer has partnered with FutureProof Retail (FPR) to roll out its new myExpress Checkout Scan & Go service.

Customers scan their items with the myExpress Checkout app, bag their items and pay in the app to complete their purchase. They can also view specials and redeem myBigY targeted offers and digital coupons while they shop. The myExpress Checkout option is currently available at 19 stores, with 10 more opening soon.

"FPR provided full real-time integration with Big Y's NCR POS and Loyalty systems. We are excited Big Y's customers love the myExpress Checkout app," says Di Di Chan, president of FutureProof Retail. "We have seen a 4.9 rating in the App Store and strong adoption growth from day one."
