CHARLESTON, S.C. -- Continuing its company-wide deployment of biometric technology, Piggly Wiggly's Greenwood, S.C. store went live on its own new payment system yesterday.
The Greenwood launch is the operator’s fifth installation of the Pay By Touch system, which allows shoppers to pay for their purchases with the touch of a finger, eliminating the need for checks, IDs, credit/debit cards, membership cards, or loyalty cards.
In May, Piggly Wiggly decided to expand the system beyond the pilot stores to all 120 locations.

The retailer expects installations pf the payment system at all 82 of its corporately-owned locations to be completed by summer’s end.
