A Jedi Master is set to help out at the tills at Poundland in Ballymena’s Tower Centre – he must!
The distinctive voice of Yoda is set to be heard from the self-scan machines in the store.
Pint-sized Yoda, famous for his jumbled up sentences, may be more used to taking on enemies across the galaxies in Star Wars but now his legendary tones will greet self-scan customers in Ballymena … and beyond.
Poundland have introduced the voiceovers to their machines in stores across the UK – but Ballymena customers will have to wait a few days as their self-scan machines are currently out of action as part of a trial.
A Poundland spokesperson told ‘Ballymena Daily’: “Like all retailers, we trial lots of things and we’re currently using our Ballymena store to give us up-to-date data on the impact of manned and self-checkouts on things like how much people spend and how quickly we serve them.
“Yoda is our latest self-checkout voice and when our trial ends next week, he’ll be heard in Ballymena too, he must”.
