The "Scan It" stations are located at the entrance of each Stop and Shop store and include some very simple instructions. Besides the convenience, the "Scan It" system yields numerous benefits for shoppers both going solo or with a children:
- Track your purchases: Most of us have a budget in mind when grocery shopping. With Scan-it, you can keep track of your total while your shop. If you find that you're going over, you can remove items with a simple click and scan.
- Bag your own groceries: If you are like me and prefer to bag groceries your own way, you'll like this system. As you enter the store, the "Scan It" station has paper and plastic bags to choose. You can always go back for more if you need, but I always grab extras just in case.
- Receive deli alerts: My Stop and Shop in Kendall Park/Franklin Twp has a deli counter kiosk where you can type in your order and keep shopping while it is prepared. When your order is up, a text message will be sent to the Scan-It gun just in case you didn't remember your number as it was called over the loudspeaker.
- Receive exclusive specials: Weekly specials are available at your fingertips and automatically apply discounts when you scan the items.
- Math lesson with the kids: The supermarket is like one big math game. There is so much you can do with your kids to build their basic math skills like addition, substraction and estimation. Use the "Scan It" to play a guessing game for each time you either add or remove an item. Let kids see the current total and the price of the item and then guess the new total.
- Let the kids help: Sometimes you have to pick up multiple items in one aisle. Let the kids run, grab and scan. But rotate aisles with the kids otherwise, you'll have them fighting over the gun.
