DURHAM, NC, June 9, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – DURHAM, NC, June 9, 2021 – QuickCollect Solutions, powered by Bell and Howell, the leading provider of grocery collection solutions, today announced a partnership with Lowes Foods, a . known large supermarket chain headquartered in the Carolinas to offer more food options to consumers returning to work.

“In today’s world of easy and convenient contactless delivery, this partnership gives consumers more pickup and delivery options for their grocery shopping experience,” said Joe Zuech, vice president of Grocery Pickup for QuickCollect Solutions. “Our QuickCollect GL lockers are already being used by grocers, retailers, boards and farmers markets across North America for automated collection of fresh grocery orders,” he added.
Lowes Foods and QuickCollect Solutions have installed the first lockers for the program outside of Bell and Howell’s headquarters in Durham, NC. Orders are currently being shipped three times a week.
