As Walmart continues to lead the evolution to make shopping faster and more convenient for customers, the retailer announces Scan & Go technology in the Berea Supercenter. Scan & Go is a concept that saves customers time by allowing them to scan items as they shop in-store and skip the traditional checkout line.
Scan & Go is one of the many improvements recently made at the Berea store for area customers. Additionally, the store added more self-checkout registers, with updated software and some with longer belts, making it faster and easier finish your shopping.
“We know speed and convenience are important to our customers, whether they’re shopping in our stores or online – so we’re always looking for new ways to save them time,” said Kenny Fields, store manager at the Berea Walmart Supercenter. “These updates are are the latest examples of Walmart’s commitment to create conveniences that allow our customers to shop however, whenever, and wherever they want.”
