My small local grocery store only has 5 checker lanes (of which only 3 are usually open) and 6 self checkouts. Unless you have a cart full of groceries, self checkout is much quicker.

Amazon is working on technology (Amazon Go) where you won't even have to scan your items. Just load the groceries into bags as you shop, push your cart of groceries through the door that has a detector gizmo (like a metal detector) on it, and the entire cart is scanned in less than a second and the purchase is charged on your credit card without needing to break stride.
