Groceries from vending machines coming to Metro Vancouver condos soon
Vancouver-entrepreneur plans to bring popular trend from Japan to the city
Vending machines that dispense everything from eggs to diapers could soon be making their appearance at condo buildings in Metro Vancouver.
The high-end vending machines, which can hold up to 60 items and are refrigerated, are already popular in Japan.
Jason Moyal, a Vancouver-based entrepreneur, hopes to have vending machines in six Metro Vancouver buildings by spring and save condo owners countless trips to the grocery store.
"No one wants to go to start walking in the rain or snow to go and just get milk or eggs or tampons for example. You want things now or quick."
Customers will also get a say in what's for sale.
"You know, we're going to cover everything you need. OK, if you need T-shirts? You got it. We're gonna put T-shirts in there."
