QR Code Required to Enter DC Whole Foods and May Be Used to Implement Social Credit System

• Posted on Youtube, video creator unknown

A sign advises customers that "cameras and sensors register what you take and put back". Customers can skip checkout as purchases are tracked and processed through cell phones. Buying groceries can be linked to a social credit score similar to China's system. The video creator plans to boycott Whole Foods.
Other grocery stores track customers through their rewards cards, store apps, and in-store video surveillance.

Update: There appears to be an entry gate for customers who want to use a register to pay for their items.
