Walmart is reportedly set to remove all cashiers from their stores. It has not been confirmed yet by what date the cashiers will be removed from all stores but they have already started to work on it.
The American multinational retail corporation wants to test a self-checkout option and move the company towards the future by being one step ahead.
One of the first stores to test them will be in Fayetteville, Arkansas. This test will show if checkout times are reduced and it’s all automated and human interaction limited. If the test will be positive – which most likely will be – Walmart is set to expand the operation throughout all stores. The retailer also launched a touch-free payment option due to COVID-19.
