CINCINNATI — Cincinnati's ABC affiliate station on Monday featured Kroger's Scan-Bag-Go system, a handheld device that customers use to scan bar codes as they shop. The device keeps a running tally of the purchase, and reduces the checkout process to a matter of seconds.
Kroger is testing the system at its Cold Spring, Ky. location. Later this week, the system is going into its Loveland, Ohio store, at the Kroger on Loveland-Madeira Road, ABC reported. ABC also noted that East Coast chains Stop and Shop and Giant Food are testing a similar system called "Scan It" in some stores. They plan to roll that out into more stores soon.
