We have tackled before the initiative that the supermarket retailer Target has launched recently for customers to avoid the check-out long lines. Now is the turn of the giant retailer Walmart to include daily life technology in easing the in-store shopping for customers. The retailer has launched a similar service for in-store shopping allows customers to avoid the long lines while checking out, the store has recruited some of its staff to ease the operation by wearing a small carrying case equipped with a Bluetooth receipt printer, and a cellular device that works as both a barcode scanner and credit card swiper for transactions.
The store stated: “Associates will help customers pay and go by simply swiping their credit card and providing them with a paper or electronic receipt for their purchase,”
This initiative came to reduce the pressure on the check-out points especially on the days of big events such as Black Friday.
