MINNEAPOLIS, MN - How do you envision the checkout experience? Whether it be a quick self-checkout guided by innovative technology or an enjoyable conversation with the retail staff, Target is making sure its shoppers receive an enhanced experience during checkout with the implementation of multiple store developments.

“At Target, we’re always listening to our guests so we can deliver a joyful and convenient shopping experience,” the company said in a recent release. “Checking out is one of the most important moments of the Target run, and we know that a fast, easy experience—whether at self-checkout or the lanes staffed by our friendly team members—is critical to getting guests on their way quickly.”

Some of the customer-focused changes coming to Target stores include:

  • The rollout of Express Self-Checkout with limits of 10 items or fewer at most of its nearly 2,000 stores nationwide
  • More traditional lanes staffed by team members across all stores for guests
  • Continued investments in additional training to ensure its teams can continue to provide great guest service during checkout
  • Store leaders have the flexibility to open more lanes staffed by team members and set self-checkout hours that are right for their store

These changes began hitting Target locations on March 17, guided by recent consumer feedback that revealed that ease and convenience are top of mind for shoppers. In response, Target piloted the concept of Express Self-Checkout with limits of 10 items or fewer at about 200 stores last fall.

“Self-checkout was twice as fast at our pilot stores. By having the option to pick self-checkout for a quick trip, or a traditional, staffed lane when their cart is full, guests who were surveyed told us the overall checkout experience was better, too,” the company release went on to explain. “We’ll continue evolving to match guests with the right checkout options so they can get what they need—alongside same-day fulfillment services like Drive Up, Order Pick Up, and Target’s same-day delivery. It’s all in service to demonstrate the convenience, joy, and value of the Target run.”
