Kroger is testing a new smart cart that could make shopping quicker and more convenient for customers. The cart has a built-in scanner that automatically reads barcodes on items as they’re placed in the cart. The cart also has a display that shows you the total cost of your purchase as you’re shopping, so you can keep track of your spending.
If it’s successful, the smart carts could be rolled out nationwide. This would be a major convenience for Kroger shoppers and could help the company keep up with competitors who are already offering similar technologies.
