A healthy food store that uses “frictionless shopping” with no check-out has just opened near the Trilith film studio outside Atlanta. Nourish + Bloom is described by entrepreneurs Jamie and Jilea Hemmings as “the first Black-owned autonomous grocery store in the world.” Their goal is to combine healthy food habits with “revolutionary technology” such as vending, QR code scanning, and robotic delivery around the clock. blackenterprise.com
