The Cube is coming to Norman, Okla., in October.
According to published reports, The Cube is a new drive-through concept — what its co-founder calls “a neighborhood concierge” — that will allow consumers to order groceries, health and beauty items, cups of coffee and fresh foods, including sandwiches, wraps, pastries and pizza, via a mobile app on their smartphones for pickup when they arrive.
The store is under construction on the site of a long-closed tobacco shop.
The reports said the co-founder is Jake Sharp, who owns two drive-through tobacco shops in Lawton, Okla.
According to an Oklahoma newspaper, Sharp said he saw a demand for a store targeted at customers who don’t want to get out to their cars to buy milk or diapers.
Sharp could not be reached for comment.
He told the newspaper he didn’t like the term “convenience store” for The Cube concept. “Convenience store seems like such a dirty word these days,” he said. “Neighborhood concierge is the best thing we could come up with.”
