June 26, 1974: Supermarket Scanner Rings Up Historic Pack of Gum

"Some readers may be unable to remember when grocery clerks had to put price stickers on nearly every item in the store. And retail cashiers had to read a price tag by eye and key in the price by hand. But that's the way things were. The process was not only laborious, but it left the store manager with no idea of how much of each of thousands of different products had been sold and how much remained in stock."

Sounds like the place where I work now, except my boss is so l33t that she does know, mostly, what is in stock and not in stock. Go Team ADH!
