Curious Sign at Fred Meyer

I went to Fred Meyer last night to pickup a few items including a small light for a children’s night globe. This Fred Meyer has a regular grocery store area and larger department store area. It’s similar to a Super Target or Super Wal-Mart only not quite so large.

I like Fred Meyer because it’s clean, the people are nice, they have a good produce section and I know my way around the aisles. I can find the peanut butter, popcorn, Diet Coke and string cheese with ease!

So last night I located the small light section in the grocery area of the store. I wasn’t finding the light I needed but I noticed a hand-written sign that said:

You can find more lights in the Electrical department

I was happy they had more lights in another area of the store, but it would have been just as easy to include the aisle number on that sign, right?

The electrical section is mixed in between the paint and the lamps areas. Although I’m very familiar with the store layout, it still took some time to find where the lights were.

As luck would have it, after I found the area, I reached in my pocket and realized I’d left the tiny light at home and couldn’t recall the model/size I came for. Total bummer.
