QUINCY, Mass. (AP) — Stop & Shop Supermarket Co. LLC is expanding the availability of a mobile app that allows customers to use their personal mobile devices to scan, tally and bag their groceries while they shop in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut.

The Quincy-based supermarket chain launched a pilot SCAN IT! Mobile app program in June for iPhone users in three stores. The app is now available for many Android devices and the initiative is now expanding to 42 additional stores.

Stop & Shop says the mobile app provides personalized, relevant and specific offers to shoppers based on their location in-store and purchase history. Shoppers should expect to receive eight to 10 targeted coupons per shopping trip, possibly saving between $250 and 500 a year.

The supermarket chain is part of Ahold.
