How much convenience shopping do we need?
Who actually heads down to the local warehouse grocery to pick up a set of radials and a six-pack of trees? I really shouldn’t be surprised; after all, this store sells everything from diapers and baby formula to caskets and cremation urns, so it must be logical to expect people to impulse purchase a plant that can live to 100 years or longer.
But when did Bridgestone get into the nursery business? They aren’t rubber trees – I checked. They’re fruit trees, poor things, bagged bare-root for sale at pennies on the pound.
You be the judge – do we really need to offer trees where we can buy sausage and auto parts?
