Grocers have the perfect opportunity to sell more items if they would stop and think to make things easy and fast for their customers. But they don’t get it.
Example: A favorite summer treat at the campsite or cottage around a fire are Smores. The combination of melted chocolate, marshmallow between Graham Wafer cookies can’t be beat. Making Smores is a summer tradition.
Why wouldn’t a grocery store have a display of all the ingredients in one place in the store, instead of having to walk up and down every aisle looking for each one. Why not, hot dogs or hamburgers and buns and condiments all in the same place. Why not put sauces and rubs right in the meat section beside the chicken and steaks.
I think the returns to the grocery store would be significant. But no, I guess it’s easy to just do things the way it’s always been done.
I wonder too when they will wake up and put some carry baskets at the back of the store and not just at the front door?? Picking up one or two things usually leads to four or five. Now my hands are full but if I had a basket to put them all in I might but six or seven things.
