Finally, the answer to the question that has plagued everyone (at least, everyone reading this comic) for the last couple of weeks- what exactly was in the box? It’s now public knowledge- Buy Lots has converted to exclusively using those new-fangled self-scan checkouts… and has laid waste to their cashier staff.
Increased productivity, reduced costs… all at the expense of a retailer’s most expendable resource: the human element. What does this mean for the future of Buy Lots? Will this be a good move for the company? What will Jeff do without Milton… and does this mean that Kayla is gone?
With each answer, more questions come to light. The new era of Buy Lots is here- automation!!! Up next: ROBOTS. Not really. Well, maybe.
But seriously- robots kick ass.
