A new checkout system has made it's debut at Meijer in Jenison.

Meijer is testing the new system.

At this time, it is unknown how long the new checkout system will remain at the Jenison store or if it will expand to others.

WZZM reports:

Meijer says waiting in checkout lines is one of its customers' top complaints. Spokesman Frank Guglielmi says the carousel type machine aims at reducing wait times.

[The machine] features 16 cameras that scan items no matter how they are placed on the conveyor belt. They're routed into one of three collection areas.

Reviews of the new system are mixed, but most people seem to think it would work well once people get used to using it.
