Do it yourself supermarket checkouts
Wow! They are great. I went supermarket shopping the other day and the friend I went with introduced me to the concept. Really handy, since all the check-out lines were long. I guess people were busy buying Easter things. We didn't have too much to check out, so she showed me how to use the do it yourself machines. I managed everything via the touch screen (first time I've ever used one!)
This installation was at the Woodgrove SaveOn. I have no idea how long it's been there--it's probably a month or more since I've been in the store.
Two concerns: How many jobs will this cost? And the debit/credit card swipe machine is sitting there, open and available for someone to do a quick switch so that all my banking information could be going to the wrong place. And that's not uncommon these days.
Does anyone know how many supermarkets in Nanaimo have installed these? I'd read about them in newspapers, but never expected to see them so soon in Nanaimo.
