You may wonder if you're in the grocery store - by 2014 you'll be scanning your own items at checkout in J C Penney stores. It's their newest idea to "boost business."
Struggling retailer JCPenney is making some big changes that will affect customers and its clerks. The store is getting rid of its check-out counters.
CEO Ron Johnson said it will remove check-out counters in stores and replace them with a system that won't require clerks. It's all part of an effort to return the department store chain to profitability.
The clerks they lay off certainly won't want to shop there.
