Newport Avenue Market Introduces Apple Pay


Newport Avenue Market, a single-store independent grocer in Bend, Oregon, has introduced Apple Pay to serve as a new, secure payment option for shoppers. The addition of Apple Pay is the next step the grocer says it has taken in continuing to keep up with the latest technology trends in the grocery industry.

Apple Pay allows shoppers to pay for their purchases using contactless payment technology and unique security features built right into Apple devices most people use daily. With a single touch, shoppers may now pay for their groceries at Newport Avenue Market using their iPhone 6, Apple Watch or iPad in a simple, secure and private way. Newport Avenue says it is one of the only single independent stores in the country to offer this service.

“We’re always trying to keep up with the latest technology trends, think of innovative ways to keep our customers happy and maintain that great shopping experience that Newport Avenue Market offers,” said Lauren G.R. Johnson, COO of Newport Avenue Market. “With the constant hustle and bustle of our everyday lives, Apple Pay offers shoppers a quick and easy way to pay, with peace of mind.”

Over the last few years, Newport Avenue Market has invested more than $2.5 million on new technologies, lessening the store’s carbon footprint and creating a care-free shopping experience for guests, the company says. In an effort to provide price confidence for customers and create ease at the check stands, the market introduced electronic shelf tags that sleep at night to conserve energy, making their batteries last just short of a decade. In addition to electronic shelf tags, the market has added new, state-of-the-art refrigeration cases that utilize 70 percent less energy, as well as self-checkout units.
