Shop24, UAlbany, giant vending machine ALBANY, NY -- Shop24 Global LLC (Westerville, OH) will install two of its robotic convenience stores on the campus of the State University of New York at Albany (UAlbany), located in the capital city of the Empire State.

UAlbany, with more than 17,000 students, will be the seventh institution in the State University of New York (SUNY) system to deploy the giant vending machines.

With a 10x13-ft. footprint, the automated campus stores merchandise snacks, beverages, food items, personal hygiene products, laundry detergent and over-the-counter medications. They can accommodate as many as 200 selections ranging in weight from 1 oz. to 8 lbs., and can be set to accept cash, credit, debit and student meal cards, as well as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) cards.

"UAlbany is undergoing major renovations within our retail foodservice environment and we believe Shop24 will help provide the 24-hour retail needs students require," said Stephen Pearse, executive director of auxiliary services at UAlbany.

The most recent SUNY campuses to install Shop24 automated stores were New Paltz and Oneonta. The latter broke ground by locating its robotic store inside a building and next to a conventional convenience store that sells the same products.
