Huge Vending Machines In ND

Posted: Updated:

 

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Room-sized vending machines that use robotic arms to dispense an array of items from soft drinks to detergent are becoming popular in western North Dakota's oil patch.

The so-called Shop24 machines are located at a recreational vehicle park near Williston and at a crew camp near Watford City.

LaVenture Logistics owns and operates the two stores. Company president Rob Lindberg says the machines aim to bring convenience store items to temporary housing residents in the oil patch.

The machines accept cash or credit cards and can sell anything that weighs between 1 ounce and 10 pounds.

Lindberg says some prices are higher than a typical convenience store. He says the company is considering other locations in North Dakota.
