SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A new anti-theft device is being installed at two San Francisco Safeway supermarkets.
They are sliding barriers at the self-checkout area that open when a receipt is scanned.
Shoppers say they've been installed at two stores, in the Fillmore and in the Outer Mission.
Safeway stores have been targeted by shoplifters in recent years.
Other supermarkets have installed similar types of gates and barriers and consolidated entrances in response to theft.
Safeway has yet to respond to a request for comment.
