San Francisco – New vending machines let consumers buy makeup on the go.
A partnership between the Body Shop beauty and skincare brand and leading automated retail company ZoomSystems is seeing natural beauty and skin products being sold through vending machines across the US. The machines are sited in airports and malls, as well as leading US supermarket chains including Kroger Marketplace, Stop & Shop, H-E-B and Jewel-Osco.
‘Customers today want to access products on their own terms, when and where they want to,’ says Al Montalvo, director of new sales and emerging channels for the Body Shop.
