Working the same corner

I don't know if you remember, but way back in September I popped into a One Stop, and commented how poor it was. If anything I was nice by giving it two out of ten.

Well, I have had a picture sent in from Stephen that has a flour arrangement just two doors away at the co-op, Oulton broad, Lowestoft. Thanks Stephen!

So what does the co-op local have that the one stop doesn't. A selection of flour! that's right, not just some mcdougals. but some homepride, allison and home brands.

You got to give them credit that it is very tidy, and the little one at the bottom is just showing some life, but the flour is spread out across a three of shelves. Surely the sultanas could be switched a bit.

It's better than one-stop that's for sure, but i am not a fan of the way they are not together as a unit.

It is tidy thought.


"Whammy...sainos local Putney"

Nicely put Nick! Whammy indeed!

This time Nick's back with a professional arrangement, from his Sainsbury's local.

Putney Local

"Good choice for a small store but no pride in their display, tut!"

It does lack some quality straight lines (which you'd expect from the traditional display), but i personally think there is something in stacking them high and making the baker engage in a game of Jenga to get the flour they want.

I also love the fact that Sainsbury's see them as the "top shelf" items of the baking world. Just like the magazines are kept out of reach of the young ones, the flour needs to be up there too.

Even though I find this a humorous display, what is granny going to do? She's not going to be able to reach up there and if she can, will she be able to handle the pressure of Jenga??? I think a letter needs to be sent to some health and safety bod.

As Nick said, a nice range for a small store, but due to the dangers for Gran, It gets marked down.

This is serious.
