Bed Bath & Beyond is looking to modernize its shopping experience, improving its store layout, expanding its collection of national and owned brands, as well as introducing new in-store features on its mobile app. To support this growth, the company is leveraging self-checkout technology from NCR Corporation.
Bed Bath & Beyond tested out the partnership with a pilot at its remodeled NYC flagship store, and will now expand the service to locations nationwide. Self-checkout benefits include faster checkouts and shrink prevention technology.
