Considering most Wegmans are in higher income white suburbs you might be surprised.

About a month or 2 ago they started randomly scanning a couple items before you could finish paying, to insure you had scanned the items. Figured it was due to losses. Scan app was nice but self checkout isn't that much slower.

The mobile scan-as-you-go and checkout on your phone app at Sam's Club is the main thing they have that I think Costco needs.  Of course they have receipt checking at the door, so it's a lot more feasible there than a general supermarket.

You literally cannot fight crime in modern America anymore. It's simply too disproportionately committed by protected groups.
Why do you think liberals are so enamored with gun control - the vast majority of law-abiding gun owners are white. It's okay to target them.

Imagine walking around with a sharp rock in your shoe.
Now, imagine that you are free to do anything you want to relieve the pain... except remove the rock from your shoe.
It's like we're living in "Catch-22." We can do whatever we want to combat crime, as long as it's ineffective.

My friend of over 35 years, when we went into Walmart, he went through the self checkout and he only scans every other item!!!! I didn't notice it, and he did this a couple times while i was visiting, and one night his wife came with us, and she told me as we were walking up that he always does this...I was shocked these are two people I thought i knew, were proud to be shoplifters, and was getting me involved after the fact without my knowledge....Well, I haven't spoke to him in 6 months and am no longer friends with him and his shoplifter family...

Sad, but I guess you never really know people... Oh and both ex-buddy and wife both white...

My local Wegmans always has an employee in the self checkout area, whose only job responsibilities appear to be smiling and watching people like a hawk.

Not sure how this works, if I put something in the bag without scanning it I get an error message.
Also camera above the scanner records every swipe.
Unless people are not taking items out of the cart the system seems pretty robust.

Walmart has a gun so you can scan stuff in your cart without taking them out.  Sam's Club has the same deal but when you leave, the receipt checker also has a gun and I think he scans your receipt then scans your cart.  Or vice versa, not sure how that works.  Walmart doesn't do that, though.

Wegmans you have to take everything out and scan it, a major pain if you ask me.

Ha that was pretty effective back in the day.   I’d get gas at the Edwardsville Citgo and under the plexiglas counter top was 6-12 bad checks on display.  It’d only get removed when made good or finally given to the troopers or sheriffs to prosecute.   I’d see some of the names and they were of course no surprise as to who is kiting checks.

Yep only to down the road have the do some social do gooding and let the criminal thieving element in anyhow.   I was in a state employees credit union back in the day.  Paid decent interest on deposits and CDs, lowest rate car loans that you could get based on having halfway decent credit.  Then they got downtown democrat pressure to serve the permanent welfare class of clients.  Suddenly they were losing money and all the good better than competitive rates disappeared.  (Not long after rates dropped anyhow nationwide)

God forbid you have a service for reliable customers.

the feature they're taking away has you scan stuff with our phone as you're shopping and bag it. Then you go to one of the designated self checkout registers, scan the code on your phone and it has you pay for everything.

I am surprised they haven't begun placing RFID into every product yet. Where you "login" to the cart with your membership card. Then fill up the cart and walk out. Everything in the cart is charged to your account.  Carts that don't clear payment or not logged in will have wheels seized up and an employee come and check on you.

Lol, that’s a rather big jump you made from me saying I think it’s strange when the angry WM receipt checker doesn’t understand their own store now allows people to use an app and not get paper receipts, to me taking some “perverse pleasure” in denying people the opportunity to do their jobs.  

Why would I use an app like scan-and-go only to then wait in line at the exit and have someone hand check every item in my cart?

I trespass both customers abusive to employees and shoplifters.  Our store is rural, our community is white, and we don't have a lot of problems to start with.  If a person chooses to make a problem, they are told to leave, and they are told they are trespassed from the store.

Only one has ever returned, and she chose to leave once confronted before law enforcement became involved.

Here at Kroger, they have those carts with a scale built in, and a tablet and scanner. You’re supposed to scan and bag your groceries as you shop. The presumption of anyone using those is that you paid for your groceries because there’s a card reader on there.


So many people use these carts now, fill them up, and just walk out the door. It’s racist to ask if you’ve paid for what’s in the cart. We see so many carts in the cart corral where the screen says, you’ve removed 14 items from your cart ??
