Up in Michigan, we shop at a grocery store called "The Hilltop". Well....actually it is named Hardings, but we call it "The Hilltop" because that's what it was called for 15 years. And it's more fun than "Hardings". It is a small little store that usually smells like fried chicken. Seriously. They must sell a shit-ton of the stuff because you can go in there any time of the day and the deli area is firing up some chicken. Guess it could smell like worse things.
They sell most things you'd need at a lake house: bbq sauce, a variety of buns, sodas, beers, ice, Star Crunches, and the like. One of the things I've noticed is that they still put price tags on EVERYTHING. Not on the store shelves. On the actual products. And there's this older guy who does it with the old fashioned "gun" just about every time we go in.
I went looking on the web and found some background here. Sounds like everyone says it is about "price fairness" and making pricing transparent. Sounds like Michigan is one of the last remaining states to do tags on items. Others think that the practice needs to stop because they're a waste of time, money and resources as well as obscuring some info on the packaging.
So...what do you think? Is it because of the unions? Are there tags at your local stores?
