Cus­tomers were able to use the new “scan as you shop” ser­vice at Tesco in Park Farm for the first time yes­ter­day (Wed­nes­day).

The shop un­veiled the new scan­ners this week – which will al­low Club­card cus­tomers to scan and pack items as they go along, sav­ing time queu­ing at the till.

The fa­cil­ity also shows cus­tomers how much they are spend­ing as they shop so they can keep track of their bud­get.

Scan as you shop pro­gramme man­ager Helen Owen said: “We find that it’s par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar with fam­i­lies as it has the added bonus of keep­ing the kids amused while you’re shop­ping. It’s also an op­por­tu­nity to keep track of how much you’re spend­ing.”

Store man­ager Lynsey Pat­ter­son said: “I can’t wait to see how cus­tomers re­act to the new scan as you shop ser­vice. We al­ways want make things bet­ter for cus­tomers, and we’re sure they’ll love it”

Tesco as­sis­tants will be on hand to teach cus­tomers how to use the new ser­vice.
