The Woodside Arran vending machine opening in Brodick

Some great news from Woodside Arran about the upcoming opening of their vending machine in Brodick (between Arran Active and the Bike Hire):

The vending machine will be open from 16th March, Monday to Sunday, 9am – 7pm

Jenny Macdonald, co-director of Woodside said, “It will be a slow start in regards to stock with the time of year. But there will be eggs, salads, kale, etc… and then we will have all sorts of seasonal goodies as the year progresses including vegetable boxes and ready meals.

It is a self-service machine that takes both contactless card payments and cash with a very simple picture touch screen system. We will also be offering some click and collect services in due course, once we make small our mistakes and get into the routine of filling it etc…

We will be making a wee ‘how to’ video for anyone who feels they don’t quite know how to handle it but it is much more intuitive than a supermarket self service counter, so we are hopeful it should be quite easy for everyone to get a handle of.”
