JC Penney says it will eliminate the checkout counter by 2014
J.C. Penney CEO Ron Johnson says he’s planning to use technology in stores to eliminate the checkout counter. He says he’ll use RFID technology, which is now used for inventory, at the checkout. So rather than scanning each item, a shoppers could just gather all their items and receive a total. Mobile technology will allow people to pay wherever, whenever. When I first read this, I thought it sounded crazy. But watching the interview, I get his vision and I’m intrigued with whether it will work. I can’t imagine my grandparents or shoppers of their generation catching on, but it could happen. Shoppers, what do you think?
