Grocery Store Checkout Lane Invention

January 13, 2009 at 11:00 am 1 comment

As grocery stores have yet to convert to the first come first serve single queue lines like you see in a bank, it’s time for a new addition to the checkout lane. Atop each cashier, a digital display should display the employees throughput. Perhaps one stat would be the number of items scanned per minute, another being the number of guests processed per hour. These cues would help you pick lanes based on the employees efficiency. There’s nothing worse than having to choose between three lanes all with 2 people in them, and then watch as the other two lanes are processed twice as fast as yours.
