I've used them a few times now - good if you only have a few things - bad if you have a trolley.

You make a good point DOTR - I was trying to get a trolley load through!! Tesco lady was very stressed at constantly having to help everyone.

Much better than standing in a queue with 3 poeple with trolleys laden with frozen food products in front of you! Or checkout operators who don't know what a courgette is.
Whatever happened to the tesco 'if anyone is infront of you in a queue, we'll open another till' promise? They only ever seem to have about 4 open.

these kind are really meant for the one basket shopper, if they work out they may convert a couple of the conveyor belt ones to self service so that trolley loads can be done (and packed in your own bags without that annoying voice telling you that the bag is full), least that's what they did in the town I came from and it did cut down on the queues a bit.

Which is the best for shoplifting in Lewes - Tesco or Waitrose?

Like the BT phone menu system, Tesco's objective here is to make you think its an improvement that will make ypur life better, quite ignoring that they could double their checkout staff and halve your waiting time.

Isn't it a way of making the shop pay less money for staff, ie. getting you to work for free?
