Walmart is testing a cashierless checkout system at one of its stores in an attempt to further limit contact between customers and associates.
According to a local news outlet, the retailer is in the process of completely removing cashiers and checkout line conveyor belts from its Fayetteville, AR location and replacing them with self-checkout registers.
Although cashiers will no longer be present at checkout, there will be attendants at the front end of the Fayetteville store to assist any customers who may need help.
And for all of us savvy shoppers, no need to fret as Walmart does accept coupons and all the usual forms of payment in its self-checkout areas.
While this strategy is designed to limit human interaction, Walmart also hopes that it will also help to speed up the checkout process. And if this model is successful, Walmart could expand it to more of its locations nationwide.
Do you prefer self-checkout or would you rather interact with a live cashier?
