Self-check fears are overblown

July 12, 2009

Re: "Minors buying liquor easily?," July 8:

This is such a non-issue. There is always a cashier on duty supervising multiple self-check registers. When I buy cold pills or spray paint or glue at other stores' self-check areas, the cashier has to come over and check my ID before I can complete the sale. The same thing can be done at Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market stores for alcohol products, and I would bet the software already has that feature so it's just a matter of telling which products require the extra step.
