You’re Going To Use That Self-Checkout Machine Whether You Like It Or Not

Self-Checkout Machine – You are Going to Use It

We may not realize it, but retailers are conditioning us to be our own cashiers.

After two decades of freeze-ups and unfamiliar items in the bagging area, self-checkout may be in the midst of an expansion. RBR, a research firm focused on banking and retail automation, says that self-checkout terminals recently had a “breakout year,” with global sales increasing by 67 percent in 2016; a surge in U.S. big-box stores purchases was a driving factor. NCR Corporation, the leading manufacturer of self-checkout machines, says it’s had record growth over the past two years.

The way retailers and industry watchers tell it, self-checkout is growing because customers want it to grow. Tech-savvy millennials would rather deal with a machine than make small talk, and even old-school shoppers might like to avoid a long cashier line if they’ve only got a couple items.

In the Wild – King Sooper City Market Scan Bag Go Checkout Kiosk

We stopped by our friendly King Soopers off 120th today for a green matcha tea at Starbucks ($9 showed on mobile app as available) and at the front door were greeted by Scan Bag Go.  City Market has installed these first two out by Boulder where we live.

Seemed pretty easy to do.  We’re going to work up a grocery list and put it to the test.  Vegetables, paper coupons, online coupons and anything else we can throw at it.

Here is an earlier article on the City Market deployment where we guessed as the design and manufacture as Frank Mayer and Associates, Inc. We checked the manufacturer tag on the back and sure enough we were right.
