So I am not the only one…

Looks like I am not the only one who has issues with grocery stores. Check out this AWESOME diagram of the layout of pretty much every grocery store and how it screws with you. Every trip to the grocery store is filled with so much potential but almost always leaves you with headaches.

    Yes, all I do is walk around the perimeter of the market and stick with the fresh veggies ,fruit, wild caught seafood, etc.

    I think the person designs it this way, so you have to go throughout the whole store and spend an extra 20 to 30 minutes in there, which means you spend way more and buy way more than you need.

      Yep… I have watched documentaries talk about how milk, eggs and the things you are most commonly going to purchase are at the BACK of the store so you are required to pass by multiple other sections to try and get you to add more things to your cart. Annoying how they screw with us!

    I too am quite positive that the store is designed to get you to walk past as many products as possible during your visit. What is the one thing you buy every week at the store? Moo juice and it’s derivatives. At the Kroger I shop at regularly, the doors are at one corner of the store, the milk, cheese, yogurt, etc are at the furthest possible place in the opposite corner. That picture is pretty close to my local store with the carts and food sitting under heat lamps being down where the produce/flower shop is.

      And I have heard that the whole idea of bakeries in stores is just to get the smell of freshly baked goods lingering in the grocery store so that you get hungry and are encouraged to purchase more!

        I don’t see how the bakery thing would work at all since I don’t really even notice the bakery smell IN the bakery area, let alone in the rest of the store. If they want me to get hungry and purchase more, they should pump the smell of cooking bacon all over the store. THAT would put me in the spending mood more than yeasty whatever in the bakery.

        I agree cooked bacon would probably work better…now why cant they have air ‘fresheners’ that smell like that, or roasted garlic?!?

        How about Pizza Hut pizza scented perfume? Yep that exists thanks to Pizza Hut Canada.
