The Evolution of Self-Service in Supermarkets and Grocery Stores

As retailers weigh the pros and cons of self-service shopping (see this post, for example), a lot of exciting things are happening in this area.
Self-Service World and Kiosk Marketplace report that: “Thanks to the adoption of self-service technology at grocery stores, today’s food shoppers can literally serve themselves at  multiple areas throughout the store. Instead of waiting in long lines, shoppers can order their deli meats, pick up some flowers and a  DVD, and then proceed to checkout, all in one area. This guide showcases the many different  options for grocery store self-service  and how to implement them correctly.”
