Over many years, we have seen a lot of the larger chain grocery stores, make a lot of changes to the interior of the stores, and layout that affect how we know and remember these stores. Not only have these stores gone through massive remodeling phases, like Meijer and Walmart, but the way you check out has vastly changed from how it used to be in the old days.

How do you feel about these grocery stores adding more self-checkout lanes? Do you miss actually having a cashier or do you find it easier to do it yourself and not have to talk to anyone?
