COOPERSTOWN – With the new self-checkout lanes being installed at the Cooperstown Price Chopper, the supermarket just gave new meaning to the phrase “grab-and-go.”
“Our customers who are just stopping in for a handful of items are more inclined towards self-checkout,” said Mona Golub, spokesperson for Price Chopper. “By providing these, as well as full-service lines, we can provide better service.”
Five self-checkout lanes are due in Cooperstown by the end of the week, a first for the village.
