The self-checkout experience at Target is about to change.

Target shoppers will see most of the retailer’s nearly 2,000 stores across the country start using an “express self-checkout” format on Sunday.

Customers who want to use the “express self-checkout” must have 10 or fewer items, Target said.

The retailer said the nationwide change aims to “make our checkout experience even more enjoyable” and draws from guest feedback.
