  6. Superstore

Superstore has decided to renovate. Something about little rodents found in one of their stores. Somewhere, Not here.

But at the same time they figured it would be a logical thing to completely reorganize the store. 

So, for the days of sunday and monday the entire staff (and pretty much anyone they could get their hands on, including the renovation crew) were tearing down and restocking the shelves at the 8th street superstore (confed will happen may 26ish)

It was quite apparent that no-one knew what was going on.

People who have never done this before were putting things on shelves randomly, there was little or no organization and much confusion over the new arrangement of items.

They claim on a flier, no doubt to be handed out to customers who wish to find things, that their new organization will make shopping easier. Which begs the question why a directory is now needed to find things.

The new arrangement now boasts an new Juice aisle with juice (not boxes or 6 packs), condiments, spices, oil, olives, pickles and water. A new improved pop aisle that contains pop, cookies, chocolate, and candy. A new baking with juice boxes, baking supplies, canned fruit, sugar, flour, cake mixes and granola bars. No longer are their imports but an "oriental" aisle that contains vinegar, rice, Chinese and Thai food. And perhaps the most confusing is the new snack food (chips/ snack crackers) isle that contains Mexican foods and plastic bags.

The only aisle to remain the same (ish) (and possibly the most logical) is 30, breakfast foods, in which they added peanut butter and jam and removed the faux/condensed milk.

Many products were forgotten, and many more were included that simply did not exist yet.

I have no idea how this new arrangement will make things easier.

You have to see it to be truly confused.

I look forward to having to do this again at my own store.
