Wow really? I thought it was a joke … no
I don’t know why I thought in convenience stores we wouldn’t see this like grocery stores.
Automatic checkouts are coming to Wawa, according to nj.com. Wawa is doing a self-checkout register test in Ocean County at Wawa located at 135 Rt. 70 in Lakewood.
Wawa has been testing automatic checkouts since 2018, but this is the first time they’ve been tested here in New Jersey. There are still cashiers as well as automatic tills for tobacco products. I don’t know why this surprises me, QuickChek has them. Why is it getting on my nerves with Wawa?
Wawa has 850 convenience stores on the East Coast and over 260 in New Jersey. The first Wawa drive-thru was introduced in New Jersey last year, so why not checkout machines?
Wawa has over 100 items that you can order, including the Wawa “gobbler”. This is the most popular sub sandwich for the months of October and November. It’s a bit messy, if you’ve never had one, give it a try.
Whenever I am in Wawa there are lines no matter what time it is. It can be 2 a.m. or 10 a.m., there is always a line at the checkout. It would probably benefit a lot of people instead of waiting in line. Cash machines seem to move quite quickly in supermarkets.
What do you think of self-service at Wawa? Do you think this will help the line go faster? Or, just like at QuickChek, it causes more lines because of all the questions people have. Checkouts are a problem when I am in QuickChek, but I don’t see the problems as much in grocery stores.
Wawa, automatic cash register?
