MADISON, Wis. -- January 11, 2013

Woodman’s Food Markets continues its century-long tradition of exceptional
customer service and shopping innovation with the launch of Mobile Shopper
powered by NCR Corporation (NYSE:NCR) at Woodman’s Gammon Road location in
Madison, WI.

With Mobile Shopper, Woodman’s shoppers can save time and make shopping easier
by using their own iPhones to scan items in the aisles as they shop. Shoppers
can use the app to create virtual shopping lists before going to the store,
further increasing the speed, efficiency and ease of their shopping trips. NCR
designs and implements the technology to reflect the brand of the store using
it.

To checkout, shoppers go to the Woodman’s self-checkout (SCO) stations and
scan a QR code on their phones to transfer their mobile shopping information
to the SCO. The SCO station confirms the weight of the items scanned with the
phone against the items being bagged at the SCO station. Attendants can help
customers reconcile any discrepancies the system identifies and answer any
other questions they may have. Produce, other non-barcoded items and impulse
items can also be added at the self checkout

Shoppers then pay with their preferred method of payment and can quickly be on
their way. The store features free WIFI throughout so shoppers do not have to
use their own data plan while using the Mobile Shopper app.

NCR’s Mobile Shopper solution went live in Woodman’s Gammon Road location, on
January 7th. The store began publicizing the new shopping feature to store
shoppers with in-store signage in early December. The signs explain how mobile
scanning works and provide shoppers a QR code to direct them to Apple’s App
Store to download the free Woodman’s-branded app.

”NCR brings unique and powerful technology that helps Woodman’s achieve our
goals of customer service and convenience,” said Chad Greenwald at Woodman’s.
“We’re excited about launching this Mobile Shopper solution with NCR and look
forward to delighting our customers with this new, high-tech shopping and
check-out option.”

“With this launch, Woodman’s is moving toward making the shopping experience
faster and more convenient for their shoppers,” said Chris Lybeer, vice
president and general manager of retail marketing and mobile solutions at NCR.
“Launching mobile checkout takes Woodman’s to the forefront of the 21^st
Century and creates additional opportunities in the future for Woodman’s to
interact with their customers in real time during the shopping experience.”

Following deployment at the Madison location, Woodman’s will explore deploying
Mobile Shopper at its other 13 stores in Wisconsin and Illinois.

NCR will be offering demonstrations of the NCR Mobile Shopper technology at
the National Retail Federation Big Show January 14 and 15 at the Jacob K.
Javits Convention Center in New York. Please visit the NCR booth, # 2007,
during the show for more information and a demonstration.
