Walmart is redesigning the front-end checkout in one of its locations as it looks to shorten lines and reduce checkout time. 

The discount giant is replacing its traditional, in-person checkout lanes with self-checkout kiosks at a store in Fayetteville, Ark., reported  Customers that prefer or require assistance can have a store employee scan and bag their purchases at the kiosks, the report said.
