Lately, I have been going to the grocery store in the middle of the week instead of on the weekends.
And I must admit that I am loving it more because it’s less crowded.
The cashier lines are not packed with customers with overflowing carts, which means the wait time is much shorter than it is on the weekends. I used to dread going to the grocery store, but now I don’t mind it as much. Well, last Thursday, while I was at the store, I noticed that it wasn’t as cold inside as it was before. Typically, I wear a sweater or something to keep me warm while I shop, but I didn’t need it on that day. See, the grocery store used to have the refrigerated items exposed and now, they have placed them behind glass doors. So, I believe that is the reason the store feels much warmer, it almost feels like they turned off the air conditioning. I am wondering if this is going to impact the energy bill. Now that the store is warmer, I am also thinking that they lowered the temperature on the thermostat. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I can go shopping in a grocery store that doesn’t have enough air conditioning. Similarly, if the store is too hot, it could be uncomfortable to shop in as well. I guess my point is, grocery stores should determine what the ideal temperature is for their customers. Not everyone will be pleased, but certainly there is a comfortable temperature that they can set. In the process, they can still conserve energy and spend less on their electric bill.
