Large-scale retail chain Auchan Retail Poland (Auchan) has debuted its fully autonomous Auchan GO concept store in Poland.
After a successful trial in France, Auchan opened this store at Kasprzaka Street 29, in Warsaw.
The new store remains open 24/7 and features Trigo’s advanced artificial intelligence (AI)-powered solution that enables frictionless shopping and automated operations.
With 75m² of space, Auchan GO is the smallest of Auchan’s retail formats, offering more than 1,000 products, including drinks and snacks, bread, dairy products, frozen food, BIO products, delicatessen and industrial products.
It also houses a range of fresh produce such as meat, cold cuts, fruit and freshly brewed coffee.
According to Auchan, more than 40% of the range in the store belongs to its private label products, including popular Pewni Dobrego branded products.

Auchan Polska transformation and projects director Katarzyna Tokarewicz said: “The Auchan GO concept is the latest of our solutions that we introduce to provide our customers with unparalleled comfort and a highly personalised shopping experience.
“We are constantly observing how the needs of today’s consumers change dynamically, hence the large variety of shopping paths we offer and our focus on combining digital solutions with new concepts of bricks-and-mortar stores.
“In the case of the Trigo platform introduced in Auchan GO, we particularly appreciate its exceptional accuracy and reliability, as well as the flexibility and scalability of the solution. This advanced system provides the technological capability to efficiently digitise and automate both small and larger store formats, with more shoppers and more product diversity.”
Last month, Auchan Retail collaborated with Trigo to launch ‘Go store’, a new autonomous grocery store in France.
