Set-up: the website is Nextdoor.com (a “social network" for people living near each other); the topic is a new store from the Meijer superstore chain that had opened nearby. Here’s the conversation:
Joe) Well, we gave it a try (not just once, about five times)... but it's still a Meijer with all the irritants we've come to expect: many empty spaces on the shelves, lots of items stocked in the wrong location, and not enough checkers for the number of customers: 11:00 AM on Friday, and only two checkstands open?
|Jane) My experience with things in life has been if you're looking for the negative you'll find it every time, Perhaps a different view would help…
Joe) [My] experience in the retail industry… is that if you have products to buy you will earn your profit. If you leave an empty space on the shelf, you lose the sale. I don't understand why Meijer can't seem to figure this out.
Judy) To each their own. As with anything you can't please everyone.
Jill) You just cannot please everyone. There are always going to be those people that are not happy period. Just enjoy life and be thankful you had the money to go to buy what you need.
They’re wrong, by the way…
