New retailers jumping on the cashier-less bandwagon include 7-Eleven and Lenovo
First it was Amazon's experiment leading people to wonder if the days of humans filling cashier jobs in the world of retail were numbered. Then a host of other retailers followed suit, putting their own spin on Amazon Go, the Internet retail giant's brick-and-mortar store concept that doesn't employ human cashiers.
Alibaba, JD and Sam's Club (which is owned by Amazon rival Walmart) are among the companies that have also jumped on that bandwagon lately, and we now have a few new names to add to that list: hardware maker Lenovo and convenience store chain 7-Eleven, both of which are trying versions of this same thing in slightly different ways.
