FRANKLIN, Mass. - BJ's Wholesale Club Inc., which operates in the eastern United States, today announced it will answer the growing consumer demand for self-checkout by installing NCR FastLane in its Franklin, Mass., store.
The four NCR FastLane units, designed with input from BJ's, enable members to scan and pay for their own merchandise. The units, available to BJ's members beginning today, will feature a takeaway belt to handle larger orders and items of various sizes found in the wholesale club environment. BJ's will evaluate the success of this pilot location to determine if the program will be expanded to additional BJ's Wholesale Clubs.
"We want to offer our members the added convenience of self-checkout, but need a solution that addresses the unique wholesale shopping experience," said BJ's executive vice president of store operations, Michael Wedge. "NCR's retail knowledge and modular FastLane solution enabled BJ's to design a system that can handle our varied assortment of products quickly and efficiently."
The NCR FastLane solution is an enhanced, modular system that can adapt to the demands of multiple store formats, including wholesale clubs, drug stores, mass merchandisers and home improvement stores, according to the company.
