Falling Flat in the Seltzer Aisle
There was something fizzy going on at Stop & Shop on Broadway tonight. I wanted to get a case of Polar Seltzer. When I arrived to the seltzer aisle, there was a bloody mary mix display blocking the Polar brand, but the Stop & Shop brand, Zazz, was left in clear view. I tried to push the bloody mary mixes aside; however, I felt like the stand might tip over. I also didn't feel like crawling into the bottom shelf to grab a case of Polar. In the end, I just took the Zazz brand, but left the store a little annoyed. There's really no difference between the store brand and Polar's seltzer, it's just that I grew up drinking Polar and that's what I like to buy. I don't think it's fair of Stop & Shop to box out the competitor's brand to push their own products. Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T
