Shoprite has completely redesigned my store, and from what I read, they are redesigning all their stores “to reflect shoppers preferences”.
HOGWASH. My preference isn’t limes, pineapples, and watermelon as I walk in the door.
This is pure messaging to shoppers from the grocery chains, that fruit should be high on your list, and in my store, fruit trumps veggies. The produce is moved farther back, jammed in a couple of display areas, with plenty of rotten moldy onions.
I don’t have any idea if moving the fruit forward will sell fruit faster or if shoppers will be instantly slimmer and feel more smug that they bought so much fruit, but I’ll buy darn well what I want to buy, no matter where you put it. So there. I don’t need no stinking visual lectures on what’s good for me. The chips are in aisle 7. Ask me how I know!
Add a total non-sequitor, this great HRC cartoon posted after her Mea Culpa Not Mea Culpa yesterday.
I see Comey is speaking today so here’s my question: Did Hillary know Comey was scheduled to address Congress today and time her accusations at Comey knowing full well he’d have to address them today? Or was it pure coincidence, ya know, the same kind of coindence that Bubba and Loretta Lynch met on the same tarmac?
Chilly chilly day again today. Who’s got a favorite horse at the Kentucky Derby? I’m going for Practical Joke at 20-1.
