(Oslo, 2 February 2022) StrongPoint, a leading retail technology provider,
announces that Salling Group, the largest grocery retailer in Denmark, has
ordered additional grocery lockers from StrongPoint as well as adding modules to
their current locker installations from StrongPoint for their føtex chain.
StrongPoint has been working with Salling Group since 2019 when it first won a
competitive tender for a pilot project for temperature-controlled click and
collect grocery lockers. The initial pilot included lockers at five store
locations. Following the success of the first roll-out Salling Group has decided
to install StrongPoint grocery lockers in eight new locations and add additional
capacity to their existing units as they continue to expand their e-grocery
"We have been piloting StrongPoint grocery lockers with our føtex chain which
has been a great success. Therefore, we are now ready to expand the offering to
even more stores in 2022 and continue building on our strong partnership with
StrongPoint. Our customers love the option to pick up groceries in a flash,
while for us we appreciate that we can fulfil orders extremely quickly which
creates efficiency savings. The solution is easy to install and operate and fits
perfectly into our strategy of serving our customers anyway they want to shop
online. We look forward to the expanded collaboration with StrongPoint and to
bring grocery lockers to even more customers in Denmark," said Kristoffer
Schmidt Sørensen, Head of Omnichannel & Strategy, føtex.

them into digital e-grocery pickup hubs. With grocery lockers they have the
benefit of providing a pickup solution at speed and scale that is convenient and
efficient for both customers and retail staff. We look forward to continuing our
partnership with Salling Group to expand and scale their e-grocery offer," said
