Another thing that would help speed up checkouts is if everyone used collapsible CRESBI crates.  Shoppers can put their items in the crates UPC codes up as they shop and have the Kroger checker scan it all right in the crates with their handheld scanner. Average scans per minute have been upwards of $100/minute.
