Publix recently added self check-out lines to two Florida locations where shoppers can scan, bag and pay for their purchases without human help.

Publix, where they say shopping is a pleasure, may have become even more of a shopping delight at two Florida locations for those who like to shop without the help of a green-vested cashiers and baggers.


Self-checkout registers, which allow grocery shoppers to scan, bag and pay for their purchases without a clerk, are available at two south Florida stores, according to Sun-Sentinel.


Target stores currently offer self-checkout options at 1,200 of their locations, which makes up 67% of their stores, according to NACS.


Similar to stores like Walmart and Target, Publix employees will stand by the new registers to help customers with purchases and explain how the machines work.

The new machines were added to the Coral Springs store at 2201 N. University Drive and the Coconut Creek location at 4849 Coconut Creek Parkway on October 18 and 19, respectively.


At the Coral Springs location, the speedy registers replaced the express checkout lanes that were next to the customer service desk.


“We’re always evaluating how to best serve our customers and self-checkout is one of those considerations when we’re looking at remodels,” says Nicole Krauss, a Publix spokeswoman.

“I like using them at Home Depot, but at Publix, I like the line because of the nice checkout people," Doug Farrar, 52, of Coral Springs told the Sun-Sentinel. "It’s a personal experience. But millennials will like it.”
