Al Meera Consumer Goods Company is partnering with Veeve, a Seattle-based tech company, to bring a revolutionary change to the retail technology landscape by introducing smart carts for the first time in the region.

The initial soft launch of smart carts will take place at Al Meera’s Wakrah South branch, followed by the Leabaib 1 branch.

Commencing on January 1, customers are invited to experience this innovative way of shopping, marking the beginning of a transformative era in the retail industry in Qatar.

In its commitment to delivering an exceptional shopping experience, Al Meera's latest smart carts are equipped with a touch screen, barcode reader, and cameras. Customers can log in, scan items, and add them to the cart, eliminating the need for traditional checkout lines. Additionally, the screen will display nearby deals and promotions, seamlessly connected to Meera Rewards, enabling customers to shop and save simultaneously.

Al Meera stated, “For the first time in Qatar and the Middle East, smart shopping carts will be introduced as an alternative to traditional carts, marking an additional step in Al Meera’s comprehensive digital transformation journey. The introduction of the smart cart is the initial phase of its rollout, with plans for a gradual expansion across more branches in the near future after meticulous customer testing.”

Veeve, a Seattle-based company known for implementing its technology in major global retail brands, adds Al Meera to its list of clients in the Middle East.

By embracing state-of-the-art technological solutions through partnerships, Al Meera not only upholds its rich legacy of experience and excellence in the retail sector but also contributes to the Qatar National Vision 2030. These alliances play a crucial role in implementing expansion plans while enhancing the overall experience for customers and employees across its extensive network of 60+ branches.
