SOME WALMART STORES REMOVING SELF-CHECKOUT MACHINES

Fox News reports Walmart is scaling back on its self-checkout machines at two stores, as more retail giants are reducing the self-service option at their stores, citing an effort to combat theft.

A Walmart in a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri, recently began removing self-checkout machines. Another location in Cleveland also did earlier this month.

“As part of our announced plans for additional investments and improvements to facilities across the country, we’ve decided to remove self-checkout lanes and replace them with staffed lanes at select locations including at our Shrewsbury, Missouri, store,” a statement from Walmart said.

“These decisions were based on several factors, including feedback from associates and customers, shopping patterns, and business needs in the area. We believe the changes will improve the in-store shopping experience and give our associates the chance to provide more personalized and efficient service.”

It is not known yet if Walmart intends to pull the self-checkouts from local locations in our area.
