Dress rehearsal for the euro: Autogrill offers facsimiles for purchases and times queues at the cash-desk

Tuesday, November 20, 2001

Milano , 20 November 2001 - Customers need 50% more time to get their money ready, while the cashier takes two hours to become fully operational, thanks in part to a cash register showing amounts in lire and euros. These are the first findings of the test conducted from 6 am to 11 am on 20 November at the Brughiera Est Autogrill service area on the Milan-Varese motorway.
