Never said anything about being nervous. I was just shocked at the "feel and look" of the shopping center in that area. The store was brand new, had just opened. It seemed more in line with what you'd find in SE Raleigh on that particular night. I did not expect to see so many people just hanging out or loitering on a weeknight. Like I said, loud music, people hanging out, way more people outside than actually in the store. It was just very odd looking for that neighborhood. I've been inside that store once, it's just not a regular shop of mine. If I need to go to a Food Lion I go to the one on Strickland near Six Forks. It just seemed "out of place".

The store I'm talking about is't even close to 10 years old. On the corner of Strickland and Ray Rd.

I still don't get what surprises you about the crowd. And what would you find in SE Raleigh?

Two supercenters have self-checkouts back after being gone for a while.

Some of the older generation checkouts were moved to New Hope Church Road and New Bern Avenue (64).

The newer machines were installed at Triangle Town Center Walmart replacing the older ones which were very unreliable.

Problem with the self checkouts is that it's easy to steal using them if the attendant is not attentive.

At my Supercenter, Triangle, the attendants are more alert than previously and also provide courteous attention to customers needing assistance.

Target has also implemented automatic checkouts at the Triangle Super Target. Started with 4 units and there are noe 8, divided into 2 units of 4 at each end of the store.

This is true. I have seen supermarkets where the self checkout cashier has been pulled away to work at customer service or at another regular checkout. Smart levels of management would have a field day with store and department management on the importance of loss prevention.

Best thing about self-checkout is a real repeat money-saver!

I scan in my coupons and pocket the big ones...
