If a new report is accurate, Walmart may be preparing to have stores with no cashiers. This is currently only being tested in a handful of stores.

The Fox 5 New York report says that part of this test is due to health concerns about shoppers and cashiers interacting with Walmart also implementing touch-free point of sale systems.
