ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – You will soon see robots scanning store aisles at select Schnucks stores.

Starting July 31, three metro-area stores will begin a six-week pilot with Tally, an aisle-roving robot. Tally’s job is to ensure products are in the correct place with the appropriate shelf tag.

“The data that Tally collects will be sent to Simbe, which will do on-the-spot analysis and provide us with the information we can share with our vendor partners and teammates throughout our organization to help us have the right products at the right time for our customers,” Schnucks Vice President of IT-Infrastructure Dave Steck said. “We’re starting Tally’s pilot with a focus on in-stock position, but we’re hopeful that Tally may open up a world of other possibilities with the shelf data it collects.”

The Schnucks Richmond Center, Schnucks Woods Mill and Schnucks Kirkwood are the three stores were shoppers may run into Tally.
