New Kids On The Block—June 2018

“Scan, Bag, Go” now offered at Krogerkroger

Kroger has rolled in a new service to make shopping easier, and quicker at their Perrysburg location. The “Scan, Bag, Go” program allows customers to scan and bag their items as they shop, making checkout less of a hassle. Customers use a handheld scanner (a number of them are available at the entrance of the store) or the “Scan, Bag, Go” mobile app on their phone to scan the items, and the total will ring up as they shop. Once done shopping, customers finish at the self-checkout scanner, where the data will be downloaded, and pay for the groceries.

This service must be activated with a Kroger Plus Card. The service will also be offered at Kroger’s Maumee, Sylvania, Holland, and Bowling Green stores.
