Independent grocery store chain Homeland has announced that it will be deploying the Toshiba Self-Checkout System 7 throughout its stores in order to accelerate the number of customers that can pay in a contact-free manner. The move comes in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and will help the grocer to continue operations in a safe manner, while also providing customers a service that will enhance their feeling of security. The POS system is capable of handling the entire checkout process and can be easily cleaned between uses to ensure adherence to suggested cleaning protocols.
VP of IT at Homeland Chris Smith spoke on the rollout of the Toshiba Self-Checkout System 7 saying, "Implementing Toshiba’s POS and self-checkout systems in our stores is definitively improving our shopping experience. As a community-centric and employee-run organization, it is vitally important to deliver elite service to every customer. Toshiba is helping us accomplish this objective. Whether completing transactions through self-checkout or via traditional lanes, our customers appreciate the convenience and simplicity Toshiba has made possible.”
