fred meyer organization

it's been a while since i've been to the fred meyer on hawthorne. apparently it's undergone some reorganization; my memory is too vague of how it was before to feel disoriented about it.

however, whoever was in charge of the new organization needs a talking to. in about thirty or so half-aisles of grocery-like things, there are about five or six of them that have the label "snacks" on them. all of them mean something different, and all of them are scattered in location everywhere as opposed to being centralized.

yesterday when i stopped in to get some snacks, one of the things i got was some trail mix. good enough to decide that i wanted more, so i tried to find it again. i thought i had a good handle on where i had seen it previously, but apparently this wasn't the case. i visited every damned aisle labeled "snacks" which took probably about five minutes in itself, couldn't find it, figured i missed it, tried again, still failed at it. i had just about given up on finding it and was considering going for the twice-as-expensive-organic option when i found it in an aisle that was not labeled "snacks".

the store needs to have some sort of google searchability or something.

Had a similar problem at a Weis recently. Section labeled "gravy and stuffing" had neither. No one bothered to change the signs in that one case since it changed from genuardis. I think that pretty much everything can be considered a snack but I don't think anyone can agree where trail mix fits on that spectrum.

although Fred Meyer is the best store, that Fred Meyer is the WORST! for its size, the space is not used well at all and it doesn't carry a lot of things that other freddies' have. parking is a nightmare, and the store is always packed with people who are dressed cooler than you.
