I am a man.
Which, of course, means that when we walk into a grocery store, we do one of two things:
A. Go in with a specific list of necessary items, the list usually provided to us by someone else.
B. Walk in hungry, with no plan of what we really need or want. This usually results in greasy snacks, beer, and/or an odd collection of meat and/or beef products.
I admit. I am very much a “B” man. And when I walk into a store, I would love to be given an idea, something for dinner spoon fed to me, the least creative guy on the cooking earth…
And this leads me to today’s FREE Publix Foursquare Tip: Remember, a retailer like Publix can post specials and things like a “complete meal idea” that simply pop-up on your smart phone screen when you check-in at the store or even to surrounding venues.
Might be a cool idea – from time to time – to offer up a complete meal idea to shoppers like me. You might even suggest a multi-course meal including main entree, vegetable, dessert, and an appropriate wine to go with it. You might even offer a small discount for buying the complete package, or maybe throw in the dessert for free?
