Scheduled to open in Q1 of 2021, C-Store Master has invested $12 million in the warehouse, which will be the only one of its kind in the country. The new warehouse has led to the creation of 40 jobs that C-Store Master will be hiring for in the coming months. C-Store Master has partnered with Geek+ to incorporate three robot technologies in the new warehouse, improving the warehouse’s accuracy to 99.99 percent. The multi-level shuttle system is the first of its kind in the Southeast.

“C-Store Master’s robots will increase their productivity by three to four times,” says Rick DeFiesta, Geek+ director of business development and partnership. “We’re proud to partner with their team on this efficiency to help provide even quicker service for their customers.”
