Kroger has added a new service here called "Scan, Grab, Go" and it's pretty cool, if you still want to walk around the store but want to get out quickly. It's pretty simple, you grab a cart, a special reusable bag and one of their new scanners, then shop kinda as usual. The difference is YOU scan your items when you put them in the bags.
Around 100 customers are using the service every day, but Kroger reps say that will increase and more scanners will be added.
Kroger reps and shoppers are saying it is cutting down on wait times to checkout, but other customers don't like it because they have the Kroger app on their smart phone, with their shopping list and the scanner is just one more thing they need to carry around the store. Its especially frustrating if you like to shop while enjoying a cup of coffee.
I'll check it out more and let you know my thoughts.
