Scan It at Giant

Well, I've seen the grocery store of the future. Walk in to Giant, get a handheld scanner. Scan and bag your food as you walk around the store. Go through a special checkout lane that downloads the products, and your checkout is done, extremely quickly. Looks like it's been 3 years in the making. There's a new logo, and new produce and deli technology, too.
Personally, it felt a bit overwhelming, trying to remember to bag and scan products, and follow a grocery list. With two people, I can see that avoiding the checkout lines would be a huge time savings. The official Giant info is here.
