Say Goodbye To Cashiers: Walmart Store Switches To Self-Checkout Only

Whether you’re shopping at the grocery store or picking up McDonald’s on the way home, you can choose to see a cashier or simply go through the self-checkout. Walmart, however, may be moving toward a future where that choice is made for you. Starting in Fayetteville, Arkansas, the company is experimenting with a self-checkout-only model. If it goes well, more locations may make the switch.

Whether you’re shopping at the grocery store or picking up McDonald’s on the way home, you can choose to see a cashier or simply go through the self-checkout. Walmart, however, may be moving toward a future where that choice is made for you. Starting in Fayetteville, Arkansas, the company is experimenting with a self-checkout-only model. If it goes well, more locations may make the switch.

If this experiment is successful, the company says it will roll this out in stores across the country. They did not give a timeline as to when this will happen, but we do know it will depend on several factors, including input from employees and customers.

Walmart representatives say that they want this process to be as easy as possible for both customers and associates.

Cutting Costs
