I do not like the self-check out.
We only have one local store that has two self-checkout lanes and I have found them to be handy when I'm just making a mad dash in for one or two items. But they're definitely not for me when I do my normal shopping.
The one thing I really do like about the self-checkouts is that they're an "open all the time" alternative to the regular 10 items or less express lanes that always seem to be either mobbed or closed.
This is a surprise. My local Albertsons just put in self-checkout machines about 3 months ago. And now they might take them out?
