Vending machines in the stall economy

Posted by sere on April 6th, 2021

Recently, an online news about urban management calling for vendors to set up stalls has gone viral, and it's a mess. Through this incident, the term "street stall economy" became popular, not only drove many people to go out to set up stalls, but also many office workers went to work during the day and set up stalls at night. Many people also jokingly called “white-collar workers during the day and set up at night. (White) Stall".

So why is this kind of stall economy so popular with everyone? The editor researched for a while, and found some reasons to share with you: the main reason for the popularity of the stall economy is still because many people were forced to be laid off during the epidemic. In order to regulate the unemployment rate, the government vigorously promoted this. This kind of cost-controllable spread economy. The second is the transaction model of stalls. For the merchants, the cost is controllable and can be used as a sideline business. For consumers, the products on the stalls are cheaper than those in the store. It's cheap, so why not do it. For this reason, the stall economy is now flourishing.

However, in the editor's opinion, the stall economy is only a boom after all, and the future of retail is still unmanned retail. There are three reasons:

1. Although the stall economy is currently being pushed hard, and there are various preferential policies, the stalls were banned for reasons such as affecting the appearance of the city. Who can guarantee that they will not be hit again for this reason in the future.

2. Street stalls are not suitable for selling beverages, snacks and other products with low profits and clearly marked prices, or secret and shame adult products, but our unmanned vending machines are fully capable of selling such products.

3. Regardless of how the stall economy is promoted, stalls are not allowed to be placed in places with huge traffic such as shopping malls, stations, and airports. But unmanned vending machines can be placed in these scenes. The audience of unmanned retail is much wider than retail retail.
