Lush is operating a fully automated micro store on a trial basis.
The cosmetics retailer has opened its first vending machine pop-up in London’s Coal Drops Yard, Kings Cross, serving customers 24 hours a day.
The smart ANMAC iLocker automated dispenser will initially run for six months offering a variety of selected products and gift sets, running on a low-energy output.
“These exciting innovative micro stores will allow us to get our wonderful fresh handmade products into the hands of even more consumers, making it easier for them to make ethical choices,” Lush global environmental reporting lead Helen Cox said.
“These allow us to get more of our hero products into the world without the operating impact of a full store.”
Lush also plans to add nine new stores to its 919-strong retail estate this year
It will also complete eight relocations to larger stores.
