It was frequently spritzed by clean water. I wanted to eat everything in the store. The employees were polite. When I entered the store, a well-groomed man saluted me and said, “How are you today, Sir?” He was almost like my butler. I was very impressed. At the check-out, the cashiers were all smiling and they told me to have a nice day as I left. They were all very polite. There were no obvious signs of security and the cameras were not obvious. They seemed to trust their customers and want to treat them with respect. I felt relaxed and pleasant in the store. I felt like I was welcome. The only thing available in the store was food and a lot of the food was quite expensive. There was a lot of organic food. Organic milk was $5 for 2 litres which seemed quite pricey. Supermarket Y was in a poorer part of town where people in a lower socio-economic bracket tended to live. The supermarket sold many items, including tools and hardware items. In a sense it was a one-stop shop for many in the neighbourhood. There was a lot more security and the cameras were visible. They were probably concerned about shop-lifting. Everyone in the store looked surly and tired. They looked undernourished. The food was cheaper, but it also looked older. Some of the meat was past its expiration date. Some of the customers in the store were talking to themselves and many were obese. I felt sorry for a lot of people there. The employees appeared unhappy and a bit like zombies. They worked for minimum wage and probably
had difficult home situations.
