Walmart is infamous for having little to cashiers available when you are ready to check out your groceries after a shopping trip. It seems Walmart is continuing this wave by recently reporting that it is developing a personal-shopping service with no cashiers at all.
All jokes aside, the implications of this move can prove to be very beneficial for busy shoppers with limited time and high net worth. According to a few sources, Code Eight, a new Walmart subsidiary, is helping develop the technology to streamline the Walmart shopping process. The service will mirror a lot of what Amazon has been able to showcase with Amazon Go, but it will have its own unique twists.
