business news in context, analysis with attitude

• Walmart-owned Sam's Club announced that its new store in Columbia, South Carolina, will be "one of the first Sam’s Clubs in the country to offer the convenience of Scan & Go shopping," which "makes members’ checkout process faster and more convenient by being able to scan UPC codes on items as they load them into their cart. When they are done shopping and ready to check out, they can pay directly on their phone from anywhere in the club and bypass the checkout line.

"The Columbia club will also offer Club Pickup, which enables members to order household or business items at and will be ready for pickup in less than 24 hours."
