Walmart tests self-scan only stores

Some people love them, others hate them. But Walmart is hoping to find out for sure what its customers think, as it tests out a store with no cashiers, and self-checkout machines only. And if reaction is positive, the same system could ultimately roll out to Walmart stores across the country.

The test is taking place at a Walmart Supercenter in Fayetteville, Arkansas, not far from Walmart’s home base of Bentonville.
