I was in my local Kroger the other day and saw a kiosk full of scanners. So, when I got home I decided to go online and see what they were all about. It turns out the scanners are part of their new shopping experience called Scan, Bag, Go. This new way of shopping is available for people that would like to scan and bag the items as they walk throughout the store. Not only can you use the scanners, but you can also download an app to your device and use the device instead. To start, you need to log into the scanner or app with your account and as you shop you just scan the item and place it in your bag or cart. You must scan each item one at a time, and for produce, you bag the items, scan the barcode on the item or the shelf tag, scan a barcode on the closest available scale and follow the directions for weighing the items. As you are shopping, you can see your running total and fuel points accumulated. So using a calculator or cell phone are no longer needed for those who like to keep track of their spend during the shopping process. When you are finished shopping, just head to self-checkout and scan a barcode on any available machine and complete the pay process. This new offering is a speedy way to get what you need and avoid the hassle of the long checkout lines.
