  1. Well, I have the same condition. Optical atrophy. I had no problem getting assistance in finding and purchasing underwear. Cashiers being made redundant? I doubt it because there is always someone assigned to help those who have difficulties finding and purchasing items in most stores. Sorry, I muse if ms.

  2. I have to agree with Gus. Co-op grocery has been using self checkouts for as long as I can remember and there is always someone nearby in case help is needed.
