Australian retailer Woolworths has announced plans to rollout self-service checkouts at 70 of its stores by June.

“Self Serve Checkouts are a really convenient option for customers and we have had tremendously positive feedback from shoppers who have used them,” said Woolworths general manager of retail operations, Marty Hamnett.

“In all the stores where we have trialled this technology, customers have really embraced it. It is now so popular that approximately 20% of transactions go through the Self Serve Checkouts. Of course they will never fully replace standard or express checkouts, but they are certainly a handy alternative for the busy shopper.”
