When they comment on what you buy
I never heard the term stocking cap until my early thirties.
..... another back in my day story ....
I was a part time sacker in high school. We had more sackers than checkers. We used paper sacks, lined the bottom with canned goods then lighter items on top. Never mixed groceries with anything else. We would double bag a heavy meat order or sweaty glass milk cartons, etc. After sacking the groceries we put them in the cart and took them to the customer’s car and loaded them. Then pushed empty cart back inside the store.
... times have changed.
I have been to Germany. I remember that now.
It's basically a basket on wheels that you get when you enter the store to carry your groceries. After you pay for your groceries you use it to take them to your car. When done with your buggy you leave it there for the store to collect or for someone else to use.
Aldi comes to mind. If you want to use a cart there is a 25 cent deposit that is returned when you take the cart back to the store.
there is only one chain I know of around here that actually has baggers anymore. I miss those days when someone bagged my groceries for me. It was so much more efficient
A lot of folks in our area are ordering online, and picking up their groceries. I was really shocked to see this. Quite an expansion at our popular grocery stores.
Yup, it was same deal in Spain at most grocery stores, and you had to pay 5 cents apiece for little itty-bitty super-thin plastic bags. In Barcelona I took my bike to the store and loaded things into my pack-basket....could hold a case of Mahou and a lot more.
Me too. And even though I tell them I don't need help putting them in the truck, they are so sweet at Publix they always insist on helping anyway.
Kroger corporate gives each store a weekly budget of hours they are allowed to fill. Store directors then divide those hours between the stores various departments as they deem necessary. Hours allocated to special needs employees are exempt from that stores hours budget. That allows stores to go over budget on hours without raising the ire of corporate.
Ill do self checkout when I get an employee discount
My experience with Publix is quite different. There is a reason they're always at the top of the surveys for best grocery store.
How many people have touched that produce before you picked it up?
What kind of store are you shopping in where you have to bag your own groceries if there isn't a bagger? Every store I shop in, if there is no bagger, the cashier bags the groceries.
With an entire basket of stuff - like he said. Who wants to do that. There is not much room there either. How do you load the basket with bags when you are still emptying it.
Yea, my 1st job at 16 (in the 1980s) - we did the same thing
I taught my kids how to bag and made them go shopping with me over the years. Many times they would start bagging and putting items in the buggy while the cashier was busy ringing things up. Several times I have had cashiers and managers working a register ask my 12-13 year old kids how old they were and did they need a job.
