A disturbing trend has reached my local grocery store. I’m there the other day doing a bit of shopping, and I look at the cart. I was aware that an agent had previously purchased the right to have an advertising placard on the inside of the baby seat. I could also see another agent had purchased the rights to a placard on the inside of the front of the cart. So I’m stuck having to look at these competitiors while I try to find fresh fruit. Now, I see that the OUTSIDE of the front of the cart has a third agent placard. GEEZ! It’s like NASCAR. Maybe I should pop for the two remaining sides or sponser the wheels. I’ll bet Vons will only let me buy one wheel or side. I wonder how much it would cost to get the entire cart? Will someone please tell me if they hired an agent because they saw them on the Vons grocery cart? I’m starting my business plan for 2007 and would really like some input on this. Thank you.
