Noted. Thanks, Connie. What a simply wonderful idea. I think all food stores should install a relaxed check-out!

I'd like to see TESCO establish this as aa policy ...
That would then put pressure on other stores to do the same.

And not only in food stores - all large surface stores, mall-type stores ...

And maybe one could promote the idea with similar chains in other countries.

Thanks, Connie

I like the term Tesco uses "relaxed checkout lane", rather than "slow". I'm not slow in checking out but it's annoying to have someone behind me that's running up my heels with their cart or boo-hooing and heaving great sighs of despair as they incessantly check their watch and search for a faster lane. Maybe there should also be a "lane for peevish shoppers".

This is wonderful and I hope many more stores do the same.
