Remember when stores had real cashiers instead of self service? Well, they still have a few cashiers left (for old fashioned people who still use cash) but they're an endangered group.
If I'm in a store like that, I always wait for a live cashier. Maybe if the store gave me a break on the price of goods for performing a service they used to, I'd go self-service. Besides, humans can deal with deviation (bad UPC code, stuff off the discount shelf); so far the machines cannot.Remember when stores had real cashiers instead of self service?
Amazon's Go cashierless grocery store. Cool concept on the checkout end, but you know they have an idea of every package you took off the shelf and anything you looked at. :surprise:Some guy walks into a store, grabs a few things and walks right out. As he walks out, the exit door had one of those arch looking devices like at airports.
Apparently is reads the electronic label on the product, and reads whatever payment card you have in your pocket. Just walk in, grab what you want, and walk out.
Considering I'm one of the few people on the planet who hate Amazon, I doubt I will ever set foot in any of their stores.
