Scotmid has installed its 100,000th electronic shelf label (ESL) in its Drumnadrochit store this week.

The investment comes at a time when Scotmid is looking to drive store change through technology and adopt sustainable practices that reduce the need for paper usage.

Allan Robertson, Programme Manager, Innovation and Change at Scotmid, said: “As a retailer based in the heart of communities we serve, we continually look for innovative solutions which will deliver genuine benefits for our customers as well as our colleagues. We’re excited to bring modern electronic labels to present our price and product information more clearly for customers across Scotland. We have rolled out to over 30 stores and will continue that roll out across our food store estate.”

The technology is manufactured by SoluM, a Samsung-invested company, with the supply and installation carried out by Cambridge-based Technology Integrator Herbert Retail.

David Sandbach, Branch Supervisor at Scotmid’s Drumnadrochit store, added: “I’m so pleased to see this huge milestone be reached in our store. It really does look fantastic. The feedback from our team and customers has been fantastic already.”
