Digital Orchard is the next step forward from the “super” market, changing the shopping experience with pandemic precautions in mind.


People are tested for COVID-19 prior to entering the store through sanitized booths located at the entrance of Digital Orchard. If a customer tests positive, the booth takes them to a designated area on the second floor where they can order groceries and have them delivered during their quarantine period. Customers that test negative may enter worry-free to pick fresh produce, buy groceries and take cooking classes at the restaurant. When pandemic risk is high, customers are restricted to only order through the digital screens inside the store.


The greenhouse on the top-level supplies fresh produce to make certain foods accessible and more resilient to pandemic disruption while reinforcing the concept of buying and supporting local. The store is organized into pods making it easier for customers to find items while skipping areas they don’t need to visit. These pods are closed and disinfected overnight. Customers who do not wish to enter the store and have pre-ordered groceries can pick them up at the drive-through and pick up area with minimal contact.
