In Woolworths adjacent news, the supermarket has announced that they will begin weighing items in the bagging area at self-service check-outs again. Yes, this does mark the return of the diabolical “unexpected item in the bagging area.” The supermarket has brought back the scales in an attempt to cut down on the number of items being stolen.

“Self-serve check-outs are popular and the vast majority of customers have no trouble scanning the right items,” a spokesperson for Woolworths shared. “From time to time, we see customers scan the wrong items, so we’ve turned on weigh scales to help shoppers validate the right items are going through.”

“We know customers like self-serve for its speed and ease and have extra team members on deck to help keep our customers moving as we implement this new measure.”

The return of this security measure comes after it was revealed that both Coles and Woolworths are trialling security cameras at self-serve registers.
