      The custom shopping list and other information can contain item locations in the store, shopping routes, sale items and coupons, recipes and other personalized information based on the contents of the shopping list, the customers shopping history and/or Customer Loyalty Number. The personalized information can be generated via shopping lists that are:

  - Scanned from handwritten or typed lists in the store and read by handwriting recognition software

- Spoken at the store and translated by voice recognition software - Sent to the store via E-mail - Recorded via a phone message initiated by the customer - Transmitted via PDA - Typed at the store by the customer or store personnel The customized shopping list, and other information, can be printed, loaded into a PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) or loaded into an electronic personal shopping device.
