Walmart Opens Its First Cashier-Less Store As It Looks To Eliminate All Cashiers From Its Locations

The nation’s largest private employer is rolling out its first cashier-less store as it looks to remove all cashiers from its locations.

Fox 5 New York reports:

“Walmart is testing a store that will only offer self-checkout.

The retailer is removing cashiers and standard conveyor belt lines at one of its popular superstores in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Walmart says it is an attempt to see if checkout times are faster while limiting human interaction in the age of the coronavirus.

Workers will still be available to help customers who have trouble doing the checkout themselves.

Depending on the success of the test run, Walmart could expand the program to more stores.”
