Where you've seen us before
Cosmetics firm Lush has opened a 24-hour vending machine. It's the most luxurious I've ever seen — but also the most expensive, with every product costing more than $20.

Cosmetics giant Lush has opened a 24-hour vending machine that allows shoppers to buy its products at any time of the day or night.
The vending machine is situated in Coal Drop's Yard, London, around a ten-minute walk from King's Cross Station, one of London's busiest rail terminals. I headed over to the tiny store on my lunch break to check it out.
The machine is unlike any other vending machine I've used before. It's a much larger, circular-shaped kiosk, which allows shoppers to walk around it to browse the products on display.
A New Venture into Automated Retail
Lush has opened its first ever 24 hour, automated retail experience in the covetable Coal Drops Yard at King’s Cross, London. Always open, always available, filled with fresh handmade products and created with the future of automated retail in mind.

Vending machine in Clapham lets you get fresh flowers 24/7
We’d love to be the domesticated type who always has fresh flowers in a vase on the table.
But we are lazy. We’re also quite busy, and don’t fancy dedicating our precious spare time schlepping to a market to pick up a new bunch every Sunday.

The modern florist continues to develop

“We want to break the 9-to-5 mentality within the flower world with an automatic for flowers,” says Carlo van Noortwijk, co-owner of Daily Flowers. The start-up has its office in the incubator of Nyenrode Business University in Amsterdam.
Lush has always strived to dazzle our customers, from our product innovations through to bringing our core values into every aspect of our retailing.
Using the highest quality of automated retail machines with our partner, Anmac, we are able to surprise and delight with a micro store that is open 24 hours a day to the public at Coal Drops Yard. It is a retail theatre that never sleeps, live glow on the go!
