Then the Moby Mart will be your new best friend. Moby Mart is an autonomous, staffless mobile store that travels 24 hours a day and can be ordered to come to your residence.

The store packs consumer items such as milk, lunch, medicine, computers, light bulbs, shoes and many other items. Other items can be ordered in advance for later pick up from a Moby Mart. All consumers need to do is enter the store, take what they need and then use a smartphone for payment.
