PCC grocery stores to remove all self-checkout kiosks

Removing technology from a grocery store is exactly the opposite of what many chains are doing. At cashier-free Amazon Go — which has locations in Seattle, Chicago and San Francisco — you can grab a sandwich and a soda and just walk out the door. Your Amazon account is automatically charged as you exit.
At some Walmart and Kroger stores, shoppers can use phone cameras to scan items and pay. And at some big chains, robots are already being used to scan store shelves and alert workers when things need to be restocked.

Snavely says PCC customers weren’t complaining about self-checkout, but since the removal they’re getting mostly positive feedback.

Do you use them? What do you think of all this?

PCC is a local grocery store, a lot like Whole Foods (which also does not have automated checkouts, but has lots of people and short lines generally).
