In terms of cost to the consumer, Smart Micro Retail can be a lot better.
- Time taken is lesser for a Micro Retail Kiosk. A shopkeeper needs time to fetch, then the anarchy in how customers shout out what they want quickly makes it worse as more customers arrive. That’s the reason why shopping malls do better, because they can manage more consumers. A VM can manage more customers faster than a shop.
2. They are 24/7 operational. Even a human who really wants a job still needs to sleep. These Smart Micro Retail Kiosks occupy less space. So you can place them on sidewalks and many places where setting up a full shop will be very costly or not feasible.
