In the context of retail shopping experiences, it has historically been challenging for a consumer

to verify the availability of a specific product in a “brick and mortar” retail store. The disclosure

proposes a system where each item in an offline shop is marked with some type of marking

technology and scanning of these marked items will store the item’s metadata (Item location, Item

name) in a searchable database. This will enable other consumers searching for the same item to

get information about its availability in a particular area.
