Does anyone like when your grocery store rains on your fruits and vegetables?
Most grocery stores where I live now water their fruits and vegetables and I hate it. Soaking wet, and then I have to put it in a plastic bag, and later dry off when I get home before storing. I first witnessed this when I moved to Raleigh, NC; the Kroger there even had thunderstorm playing through speakers when it sprinkled the produce.
I think maybe this is done with midwest based chains more than others, but I only base this on personal experience and no statistical data. Kroger and Schnucks do it, and they are based in Ohio and Missouri respectively. I don’t remember Publix doing it, and I don’t think they have started to in new stores?
I have not found one person, customer, who is in favor of the practice.
A friend of mine hypothesized it is so the produce weighs more, but I had thought it was because someone seems to think it makes the fruits and veg look more appetizing.
I’m ready to start a petition to get them to stop it, I find it so annoying.
