Where do convenience stores put outdoor displays at night?

Asked by Supacase (14533points) February 23rd, 2010

I know most retail shops pull everything in at night and put it back out in the morning, but what about those dozens of pallets of 2 liter sodas that are often outside of gas stations and convenience stores? Do they really haul all of that in and out every day? They have got to be heavy.

If they’re on pallets, all they need is a pallet jack to move them inside at night. No trouble at all. That and most convenience stores are open 24 hours, so there’s no need to move them.

Very few are open 24 hours around here. The jack makes sense if what I am calling a pallet is really a pallet. They are blue plastic squares, something like the bottom half of an egg carton, that hold 2 liter sodas. I think they are flat on the bottom, but I am going to look next time to see if they are placed so that there is some space between them and the ground. I could just drive by one night and see if they are still out there.

Around here they leave them out. I know since I am using some to keep my box spring and mattress off the ground instead of a bed frame.

Round here, everywhere moves everything inside and locks it up. Otherwise it will be gone by morning.
