This seems fine for a CVS-type store, though. Like, how different is it really from self-checkout and scanning my ExtraCare card? The machine already knows when I haven’t put the appropriate weight of items in the bagging area, and my card tracks my purchases to generate targeted ads and coupons. I don’t think it will replace traditional check out lines and customer service counters, but it’s not so bad.
Also, can I just say we should all be carefully checking our grocery store receipts? Sometimes cashiers make mistakes! Sometimes they don’t charge the promotional rate! Sometimes items are MISLABELED!!!
