Wal-Mart customers in some Arkansas stores will soon cross paths with robots roaming the aisles.

The Bentonville-based company says it will begin using the devices in about 50 stores in November, including Searcy, Sherwood and Pine Bluff. A Wal-Mart store in Rogers will have a robot early next year.

The robots are programmed to handle tasks that are repeatable, predictable and manual, like scanning shelves for out-of-stock items, incorrect prices and wrong or missing labels. This new shelf-scanning technology frees up time for associates to focus on serving customers and selling merchandise.     MORE
