Shop24 Global And EdR Bring Convenient Shopping To EdR Communities

EdR (NYSE:EDR), one of the nation’s largest developers, owners and managers of collegiate housing, has entered into a non-exclusive agreement to place Shop24 automated convenience stores on select EdR properties. Trial locations will be installed at The Commons on Kinnear in Columbus, Ohio, and East Edge in Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Shop 24 stores are automated, self-service, stand-alone facilities that can dispense a variety of products from pencils to cookie dough, from shaving razors to aspirin. The products are selected for each location based on consumer marketing studies and surveys.

By partnering, EdR and Shop 24 will provide another innovative and convenient service to on- and off-campus collegiate residents across the country. The stores are conveniently located and offer a safe environment when residents need to make a last-minute purchase or even satisfy that craving for something sweet when other stores are closed.

“Shop24 gives our residents easy access to an abundance of products anytime, day or night,” said Scott Casey, EdR’s senior vice president of strategic business development and chief technology officer. “Offering a unique solution of this nature is considered an important amenity for our residents.”

“EdR’s communities represent the best-in-class for private collegiate housing at universities across the country,” said Matt McGovern, chief executive officer of Shop24 Global. “The Shop24 automated convenience store will be a welcome addition for students at these communities, providing unparalleled selection and convenience in a ‘non-traditional’ convenince store format, the fastest-growing segment of the convenience store market according to the National Association of Convenince Stores.”
