Whole Foods in San Antonio was one of the first in the US to introduce Amazon’s new smart grocery carts.

SAN ANTONIO One of the Whole Foods stores in San Antonio was the first of three stores to feature Amazon’s new smart food carts.

Whole Foods at 18403 Blanco Road at Vineyard Mall is rolling out Dash carts, bringing a new grocery shopping experience to shoppers.

Dash Carts give shoppers the ability to use the Whole Foods app or cameras on the cart to scan items, weigh items in the cart, and view receipts in real time while shopping, news release stated.

Users can sign in with a QR code on the Amazon or Whole Foods app and start shopping and scanning their items to use the Dash Cart.

When it comes time to checkout, the customer is directed through the Dash Cart strip and a credit card linked to their Whole Foods or Amazon account is used to pay for groceries. The buyer then receives a receipt via email, news release said.

Amazon acquired Whole Foods in 2017 and launched its Dash Cart technology in 2020.

Amazon has added carts to many of its Amazon Fresh stores and is now placing them at select Whole Foods locations in the US.

The press release says that since 2017, the company has upgraded Dash Carts technology to “help customers save time while shopping for groceries.”

“As many of our customers return to their usual in-store grocery shopping, it’s exciting to introduce them to new and unique ways to shop in our stores,” said Leandro Balbinot, CTO of Whole Foods Market.
