Self-checkout now comprises nearly 40% of grocery checkout options

Despite the frequent complaints from consumers and media reports about self-checkout lanes, grocers are continuing to push forward with the technology as labor challenges persist and consumer shopping habits evolve. Catalina noted that more retailers are pivoting from manual to self-checkout lanes. 

Self-checkout lanes are becoming more popular due to social distancing measures sparked by the pandemic and the availability of automation technology, the firm said. A few retailers, such as Walmart, Kroger and Dollar General, have even started testing self-checkout-only stores, per CNN reporting cited by the firm.
