Default Cutting down liability.

Even with a LARGE area set up so that people can do all the check out work themselves.... long lines back up. Most people are not used to scanning and bagging, etc. A LOT of grumbling from most everyone.

So... I go to a small grocery store... and they have done the same thing there too !

Sheesh !

Maybe these things are a way to cut costs of labor or maybe people don't want to do "menial" job. Who knows.

In any case, going to the grocery store is just one more thing that's changing.

Thanks Millard,

My Walmart has done the same thing, not only do they save (over time) on payroll but it eliminates the LIABILITY of exposing employees to Covid like diseases.

Can you imagine the costs Walmart had when their cashiers got sick?

In today's litigious world, eliminating as much liability as you can is a corporate mantra.

In a year, people will wonder why they ever used a cashier at all.
