In keeping with the chocolate theme today, some time ago, I asked you, dear readers, about whether I should talk to the managers a my local grocery store about the price difference between the Polish and British Bounty bars for sale. The yeses won by one vote, so I followed up today.
They told me I need to go to the corporate offices.
I am not going to bother.
Here is why. When shopping at the other stores in this chain, I noticed that they only sell the British version of the Bounty bar now instead of both. So obviously, the public figured out the cheaper Polish version provided the most value for money. Meanwhile, the chain is stuck with this inventory of more expensive Bounty bars that they have to offload. My store just happens to have a few left.
So Chicago area consumers are pretty smart and do not need my advocacy, at least when it comes to food.
