Walmart To Test Cashierless Stores

Walmart is replacing cashiers at its Terrace, BC, store with self-serve checkouts this summer, making it a test project along with a select number of other outlets in Canada. It says the Terrace store was selected as a test location because a large number of customers were using self-checkouts. But while it will eliminate cashier positions, that doesn’t necessarily mean an overall job loss, it says. The self-checkout area will be staffed by associates to help customers and there will be no job loss as a result of this change.
