Target, Safeway, and Walmart to remove self-checkout kiosks at select locations

Industry news

  • Target, a leading discount retailer, has removed self-checkout lanes at a store in Emeryville, California, for unspecified reasons. The decision follows the company's recent revamp of its self-checkout policy, which plans to restrict the use of self-checkout to purchasing 10 or fewer items.

  • Meanwhile, grocery retailer Safeway has also announced plans to remove self-checkout kiosks at several store locations in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, as a response to theft. The company also recently removed self-checkouts at one of its Oakland, California, stores.

  • Furthermore, Walmart has also announced plans to convert self-checkout lanes at a store in St. Louis, Missouri, to traditional checkouts in response to shopping patterns and feedback from customers and associates. This follows the removal of self-checkout options at several other Walmart stores, including stores located in Cleveland , Los Angeles , and New Mexico

  • Analyst QuickTake: The self-checkout removals at Target, Safeway, and Walmart reflect a shift in the self-checkout policies of grocery and supermarket retailers. Earlier this year, discount retailer Dollar General announced plans to return to traditional checkout options.
