More and more places are offering self-checkouts. Good or Bad?
you have a couple of small, non-id requiring items and don’t want to wait through a long line.
you have a FULL grocery cart, alcohol and a membership card on a smartphone that doesn’t scan without a handheld scanner.
I’m sure y’all have all seen those people who have entirely too many items in their cart to be going through self-checkout. Well, what if that’s the ONLY option.
Sounds awful, right?
Yesterday was the third time I had been into Kroger where that was my only option. Self-Checkout. Three times in 3 months. Too much for me. I work night shift at the hospital so I get off at 7 am. By the time I get to our side of town and finish my grocery shopping it’s about 8:30 am. Grant it, there aren’t a lot of shoppers at this time, but should a shopper really only be offered self-checkout? I don’t think this is fair. I understand the business aspect of it (saving money on employees), but they should think about the business aspect of customers like me not wanting to shop there anymore because I don’t want to self-checkout my week of groceries.
Any thoughts on self-checkout?
