Chaos. It was chaos I tell you. Pick 'N Save on Silvernail is in the middle of a GRAND RE-OPENING SALE! which was not what I was expecting when doing the shopping this morning. Already narrow aisles were bottlenecked by cases of product being shelved while heavy two-way cart traffic manuevered around people trying to read labels. The sale seemed to attract many people who don't normally shop there. Where normally it's common to bump into someone we know, today there was a lot of bumping into people we didn't know, literally. I don't know if everyone was avoiding eye contact to prevent an aisle-clogging conversation or just too busy searching for the next item on their list. I'm not exagerating when I say most everything in the store has a new location, and after several weeks I still have as much trouble as anyone finding things.
Maybe it's a sign of the times, or maybe the manager knew how congested it would be, but today there was only one free sample. A Grand Reopening! and no more free samples than on a normal Saturday. It's a wonder I still shop there.
