I notice how they put out things where they usually don’t belong … like in the counter with all the meats, you find all kinds of bottles with sauces. Yesterday I saw a new kind of mustard there.
I watched a programme on Canadian TV, the other night called Marketplace. They altered an ordinary grocery store overnight … they just moved stuff around, placed it differently, new type of sales-tags … the sales went up 25%. They pointed out little things that really turn people off, like when the aisles are so narrow so you bump in to other customers. Nothing should be sitting out in the aisles, but our grocery stores here must have missed that show.
I found one thing, though, that is a great and positive surprise: Recently we bought this Keurig coffee machine. Shortly afterwards I got ahold of a few ‘cups’ for it that you can load with your own coffee. Up until now, I haven’t liked them at all, because the mesh lets coffee grinds through, and I end up with an upset stomach. Was thinking to myself, the other day; «There should be little filters for these things!» What do you know! I wasn’t the only one thinking along those lines — yesterday I found packages with little filters for Keurig.
I’m drinking a good cup of steaming, black coffee now, as I type.
