Sticky situations

There's a new HEB near us where we've been doing our big shop for the last couple of weeks.

Usually I don't like being dragged around the supermarket on a Sunday morning but this place is different. They've got a great marketing ploy that makes husbands more likely to want to go there.

In the fruit and veg section you put what you want in the little bag as usual but they have electronic scales all over the place. That's not the exciting part but what comes next is. You hit the print button and it prints a little sticker with a barcode and the weight and price of the item. Brilliant!

This makes the check out faster and also makes the cashier's job easier but it is very exciting for the customer too.

Go on, give it a go. You know you want to.
