Three NCR FastLane self-checkout lanes have been installed at a new Marks & Spencer Lifestore - the retailers first standalone homeware, or homefurnishings, store. The store is located in Gateshead, on the northeast coast of England.The NCR self-checkouts, which allow shoppers to scan, bag and pay for their goods, have been designed to handle the wide range of home furnishing products, from cutlery and champagne to outdoor lighting and gym equipment, on sale at the Marks & Spencer Lifestore. The new self-checkouts are larger than the standard NCR FastLane units that have been installed in food departments at 14 Marks and Spencers stores over the past 18 months. The bagging area has an additional space for customers to place items too large to put in carrier bags, while they pay. A handheld scanner is available, in addition to the standard fixed scanner, to scan the bar codes of larger items. The NCR FastLane self-checkouts are finished in white to match the look of the store. They have been placed adjacent to the stores traditional checkouts on the ground floor. An attendant station is next to the self-checkout terminals and will be permanently manned by a store employee to provide immediate assistance if needed.
