Winning the grocery store game

“You’ve entered the grocery maze. The bakery’s fresh-from-the-oven smells get you as you enter the store. You pick up doughnuts, even though they’re not on your shopping list — or your diet. Two points for the store. You want to buy only bread and milk, but they’re in the back of the store. On the way, you see a new brand of olives that looks great. Into your basket they go. Two more points for the store. Standing in the check-out line, you browse a home design magazine and get hooked on a story. Gotta have it. Two more points for the store. You’ve been had by Grocery Store Design. You’re not alone.”
