and other grocery items are the signal for a new marketing technique that store officials claim will save money and time for shoppers and the industry Consumers arent sure how it will work Supermarkets are j u F t starting to try the system on a limited basis Its called the Universal Product Code and in volves the use of scanner and computer designed to speed things up at the checkout counter and cut down on human errors It may be a while before shop pers in Southern Illinois major supermarkets will find the sys tem in use Walter Roberson general manager of J C Penney at Carbondale said the code sys tem is being put into use in Bui new marketing technique will save some shoppers money the companys urban stores now At a cost of from to to install it will be a while before the Carbondale store willhave the system in stalled he said John Urbanowicz sales man ager for the National Stores St Louis division said he does not see the system in use in National stores before five years because of too many bugs to be ironed out first The spokesman for Kroger stores in the area Eugene Fanker of St Louis was un available for comment The Marsh Store at the Sher wood Shopping Center in Troy Ohio has been using the code system since June 28 and spokesman Steve Overmyer said Monday that initial reaction had been just fantastic He con ceded that there were a few little bugs here and there but nothing like the problems we anticipated Some 1700 manufacturers with annual grocery sales of billion are planning to imple ment the system Heres how the system works the different sized lines arr im printed on a can or box by the manufacturer A spokesman for Distribution Codes Inc of Washington D C which de veloped the system explained that the lines really are called a machine readable symbol linear bar type Some of the lines stand for the name of the manufacturer and the type of product The rest represent the price If an item is not marked with the code either because the manufacturer has not imprinted it or because the product is something like meat that varies in price according to weight the store can stamp on its own symbol with an instore er The customer takes the prod uct to the checkout counter where it passes through the scanner which reads the lines and asks the computer what the price is The com puters reply flashes up on a screen and is noted on the cash register Shoppers still will get a su permarket tape including not only the price but the name of each item represented by whats known as a 12character alpha description Consumer opposition stems from industry plans to ulti mately eliminate price tags on individual items entirely The price would be posted on the shelf above or below an item but wouldnt be stamped on tht product itself ;
