Differences in Bulk Food at Wegmans

applesandbees | Dec 1, 201410:47 AM     2

Hello all,

I’m wondering if anyone ever encountered an error with self-checkout of bulk food. Over the holiday I bought a few pounds of almonds. I printed out the label for them, then wrapped two more plastic bags around the original and put the sticker on. When I went to check out, an error occurred saying that the item does not match the weight specified. The attendant came and cleared it up, but do you think the weight of the extra two bags added a percentage of weight to it that threw off the scale? I don’t know how much weight two more thin plastic bags could add to it.

I worry about using the self-checkout again if a .01 of weight is going to throw it off and may just use regular checkout from now on if that’s the case.
