They also move the toys from the second floor to the first floor to make way for Christmas decorations. What business do toys have next to perfume and women’s underwear?!
…and later there will be an aisle with nothing but sprouts…..
Reminds me of the Victoria Wood monologue where she asks why they put handbags next to leotards. And what do you mean later there will be an aisle with nothing but sprouts, my local supermarket has had one since November.
Lois Keen says:
The shops are shooting themselves in the foot. All that sensory overload makes me just dash for the two or three non-holiday things I needed and make a run for it! Which ain’t easy, because all that extra stuff in the aisles, combined with the extra shoppers, makes the shopper trolleys (shopping carts) dangerous hazards. It takes only one to block up everything. Oh please God let me be able to get through these two days of the week end without having to go to the shop! (Except for that bulb of fennel I forgot to get yesterday. drat.)
I don’t think they want to make anyone unhappy.
They are just so greedy and focussed on selling as much as possible they don’t even think that pushing trolleys around crowded aisles and bumping into things and people while getting hot and cross would make people unhappy.
In fact they are so focussed on how to sell more they don’t even think what it might be like for the poor shopper. That’s what greed does.
“The shops do this because they want to make you unhappy.”
Hah! I knew it!
I have long suspected this.
