Thread: O/T Supermarket Tills

    Re: O/T Supermarket Tills

    I very much appreciate more often than not a swift purchase and exit when I have minimal items.

    It's ok to have both, I wouldn't want to see no cashiers but those machines have saved me hours upon hours.

    Only reason stores would be considering the scaling back of this is if ultimately it's eating too much into their bottom line. It's not the two fingers defiance to technology the Guardian article suggests.

    I really can't understand your objection to self scan. Automation definately does reduce costs, here's a question for you, would you un-invent the vacuum cleaner? It put a lot of cleaners out of work.
    Nature abhors a vacuum cleaner. They suck.

    Yes it's the amount of theft, they are becoming uneconomical.

    in Orlando, self service tills are really a new thing , our local ( to where I stay ) Walmart didnt have any last Aug, this Oct they had 12, but that really doesnt paint the whole picture as they had 56 Tills ( and peak times most are open ) for store size comparison its about the size of the Tesco's near the heath hospital ( western ave is that ? ? )

    They have built a new Target close by and that does have more self service tills, its not a big store though

    I've used Tesco's on-line ordering and it is very good. I never buy fresh meat on it but anything dried like flour or prewrapped like cucumber or potatoes is fine. When you order you can select whether you will accept an alternative if your choice is not available, or just have it struck from the order. Even if you do choose to accept an alternative the driver will tell you what alternative has been given and if its not acceptable he will take it back.
    No problem
