The Operational Company is pleased to announce the opening of its first of a new breed of supermarkets. Totally automated. Just scan and collect. Each item is delivered into your hand as you scan with your credit number. Collect as many or as few items as you need. No need for face to face contact. Every thing is automatically handled. No risks of contamination. Every item is delivered using robotics. From tomatoes to beef burgers, from Irish chowder to Mexican nachos. Please note that no staff have been hurt in this change of delivery.

A fine day at Mevagissey

  1. I have to say, Michael, that I have an intense dislike for automated check-outs, and I think they feel the same about me.
    Ghastly dystopia, nicely done

  2. This made me smile. I shopped for groceries yesterday, and it wore me out. Time was, it was just another chore on the to-do list. Now it’s a major event, after which I need some time in my comfy chair to recover!

    1. I am pleased to hear that I made you smile. I have to agree that at the present time going to the shops is a real trauma. I do feel that the supermarkets are really very much behind the curve in creating a relaxing ambiance within there building.

  3. Amazon already has at least one store where you walk in, grab your goods, walk out again and magically your card gets charged!

    As for self serve checkouts, I seem to be in the minority here because I prefer them!
