Safeway Inc. Informative - Self Checkout
MARYLAND -- This is probably not unique to Safeway, but it is where I noticed it. I am not a people person and I love the convenience of the self-checkout lanes.
This past weekend, my son asked me to get him some bagels. I stopped at Safeway and noticed that they were around $3.99 a dozen. I got a dozen.
When I got to the register, I pushed through the on-screen display, found the bagels and entered my quantity(12). The total came out to $7.xx almost double what the sign said in the bakery.
I eventually got some assistance and found out that I should have searched more until I found the "dozen bagel" button. It all got straightened out, and I now know that 12 is not the same as a dozen at Safeway.
Point is this, be very careful at self checkouts; the lack of cashier experience can cost you $$$ if you are not careful.
