LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Kroger is adding an additional service, making it easier than ever to shop for groceries.

The option allows customers to scan each of their items on a smartphone app. Patrons can buy on their phone, bag the groceries and leave.

"They specifically want their time back and so that's what we've done," Anaris Sickles, expert of "Scan, Bag, Go," said. "We've given them their time back. We've kept them on budget. They're are able to see their running total so we help them out a lot."

The program is currently only available at the Kroger location on South 2nd Street.

Online ordering, traditional checkout lanes and home delivery are still shopping options at Kroger.
