Target Is Limiting Self Checkout To 10 Items Or Less

It looks like cashiers will still have a job at Target. Target is making some changes to its self-checkout policy.

The retailer announced it’s capping the number of items shoppers can have at self-checkout, a move that has "plenty of justification," according to marketing professor Mike Porter. He says some people don't like self check-out and will appreciate the new item limits.

 Target is attempting to speed up the process by setting the limit to 10 items.

More lanes that are staffed with employees will be opening up to help those who have fuller carts. The "Express Self-Checkout" lanes will hit most Target stores on Sunday. Porter says this decision could be related to store theft, although Target didn't give a reason for the shift.
