Walked in today, Sunday, VA Beach store normally busy this fall, parked near contractor door that has 3 registers that can be available. Went to get some lighting and then went to check out at main exit area. All 4 self checkouts open with 1 attendant monitoring and 3/4 were card only and no cash back which I was looking for. There were no main registers (12-14) open and no contractor registers open when I walked down there. The self checkout helped me at her counter, gave me cash back. I asked what in the world was going on because no other registers were open, she said they were short handed and were cutting back hours for employees.. She then said something about the NASCASR contract terminated (not a big deal)... This is on a SUNDAY, at 3:30 PM!! IMO, We saw the beginning last week with the breakdown in the S&P... Big money funds shrugging it off and finding short term world/political events to place blame, but I think it is a major crack in the Trump economy... Never have I witnessed after 20-30 years of this big box that they opted to not have any personal registers open and they never should have done it especially on 1 of the 4 December Sunday's before xmas. Good luck to all, an early warning if nothing else.
