Jacksonville Walmart adds “Scan & Go” technology

No one like waiting in long lines at stores, but now a new app from the local Walmart may have come up with a resolution.

The Jacksonville Walmart location recently announced that the store is adding new technology with the implementation of the Scan & Go program.

The Scan & Go technology allows customers to download an app, scan and bag an item and pay directly with their phone. Another feature included in the app allows customers to look up an item if there isn’t a bar code to scan. Once they have purchased the item, the customers can walk through the Mobile Express lane, where an employee will verify the purchase.

The Walmart Supercenter in Jacksonville joins Pekin and Wood River as the only Walmart stores in Illinois to offer the service.
