I have something to say about grocery stores. I know I shouldn’t complain because grocery stores really are fabulous. Any store that sells 50 different flavors of ice cream really should be held in the highest esteem.
But I have to ask… why don’t more grocery stores stack shopping baskets at the back of the store? They’re always at the front and I have to constantly go hunt for them.
Here’s my typical shopping experience:
I walk in, I think to myself: “What did I need again? Why am I here? I’m sure I am going to forget something.”
Before I’m even 15 feet into the store I’m forgetting things. And that includes picking up a shopping basket. And the grocery stores always stack them in the front. I’m at the back of the store before I remember.
I think to myself: “I’m sure they have a stack of baskets here somewhere.” And I walk through the back isle looking around. But no, they don’t. They only stack them at the front. Why is this? Wouldn’t it be smart to have baskets near the back of the store, too? Maybe there is some smart reason, can anyone shed light on this?
