I love the self check out lanes. They're almost always empty in our stores and I can get in and out of there super fast.
The incident I was talking about was annoying 'cause I had about $300 worth of groceries (for a get together this weekend where I did all the cooking--and incidentally, I managed not to kill anyone with my cooking! ) and it was a ton of stuff to sort through. I also don't appreciate it when the employees stare at you and watch you work but don't offer to help, when they have NOTHING else to do. (After I weeded through the groceries from the customer behind me and she got her goods, there was no one in our line during the time I was bagging and carting my stuff.) So yeah, if you're busy, no problem. But if there are no other customers, how about helping the one still there?
We've got a couple other grocery store chains that I go to that employ a lot of mentally challenged folks as baggers. I've not had a problem with any of them--they bag the groceries really well. It seems like they enjoy their work, so I hope they're paid well for their services.
Now I know that the stores with memberships (Costco, Sam's) are considered discount stores. And Aldi's is a discount grocery store where shoppers bag their own stuff. But is Super Target considered a discount store? If so, they need to lower their prices to Aldi level and then everyone wins!
Marley, I've experienced the groceries piling up at the end to the point where they flop over the edge and onto the floor... Cleanup in Lois Lane's aisle!
