Kroger Looking to Eliminate Checkout Lanes

Kroger customers get their scan on at north Fulton store

Kroger’s new “Scan, Bag, Go” technology was recently unveiled for the first time in Georgia. 

Customers of the Johns Creek location, at 10945 State Bridge Road, have been able to use a wireless handheld device or mobile app to scan and bag items while walking through the aisles since April 17. When shoppers are finished, they just need to settle the bill at checkout.

The Cincinnati-headquartered grocery chain is expected to roll out the new service to 400 stores this year. It may eventually replace checkout lines.
