West Bend, WI – Local grocery store Aldi has jumped on board the national trend adding self-checkout lanes. There are five self-check stations at the store on S. Main Street in West Bend.
The self-checkout is pretty simple and very similar to the other grocery outlets in town.

The scanners are quick to read the barcodes, the send and receive platforms are large while the setups themselves are pretty compact.
There are pictures to help when purchasing produce and vegetables. The payment screen is easy to use; note – cash is not accepted at the self-check, just credit or debit.
The stations, currently at Aldi in West Bend but not in Hartford, are set in between the two staffed checkout areas and then there a random checkout along the front wall; it’s separate from the other four…. kind of like it’s been sent for a timeout…. but all worked swell and helped keep the traffic flowing.
