Customers at the Pekin Walmart are now able to use their phones to bypass the checkout lanes completely.
The Scan & Go app allows customers to scan items as they shop in-store and pay without ever interacting with a cashier. After paying in the app, the shopper just shows the receipt to an employee on the way out of the store.
Pekin is the first Walmart store in the Peoria area to use the Scan & Go app. The Jacksonville and Wood River stores in Illinois are also using the app.
