Kroger expands new self-scanner technology to Richmond
Kroger shoppers in Richmond now are able to scan their groceries as they shop.
The company’s Mid-Atlantic Division launched “Scan, Bag, Go” on Tuesday at the Willow Lawn Kroger in Henrico County. The technology allows customers to use a wireless handheld scanner or the “Scan, Bag, Go” app on their smart devices to scan products as they shop. Consumers also can bag products as they shop and pay for the groceries on the mobile app.
The Willow Lawn Kroger is the first store in the Richmond area to offer “Scan, Bag, Go.” The technology will be added at more stores in the Richmond area in the future. The Roanoke area, where Kroger’s Mid-Atlantic division is based, was the first in Virginia to add the technology back in February. In addition to the Richmond store, “Scan, Bag, Go” is available in three stores in Roanoke, two in Blacksburg; one in Radford; as well as a location in Charlottesville.
