Did You Find Everything?

Monday, 26 February 2007 at 5:00 am Pacific USA Time.

An Albertsons supermarket near me is going out of business. Slowly. As in they’re open while they’re winding down. I rarely go in there, but went in to find out that they were closing, and to see the odd wasteland it was.

The supermarket was cavernous and half empty. Evidently they were not restocking shelves as things sold. So the place is just getting more and more empty. I guess it makes sense, but as a shopping experience, it’s just surreal.

It also means I didn’t find what I went there to get. So I grabbed a small bottle of soda and some mints, and went to the cashier.

The poor cashier STILL had to ask me if I found everything I was looking for today. The woman who was asked that before me commented on it. No, she couldn’t find everything because the store is closing and they have very little stock.

Why have your cashiers say the same thing? Why not have the cashiers say, "Thank you for shopping here. Our location is closing soon, but you can still shop at the Albertsons on West Ina or on La Cholla."
