I’ve often wondered what the temperature is in many of the retail stores that I visit! One big box store in certain that I visit nearly every month always seems to be chilly, no matter the time of afternoon or the season. I wonder what their reasoning is for practically trying to freeze everybody out. I feel I am not the only one who thinks that it’s too chilly in the store, because I have struck up casual conversations with other buyers before who feel the same way. I also notice buyers coming into the store with jackets even in the middle of the summerâ€¦ There are other stores in my neighborhood that seem to have the opposite problem. They always seem too hot. There’s a little bakery I frequent for fresh baked bread and pastries. It’s always really hot in that shop, however granted, they have got ovens running around the clock and the door is always jingling open and shut, letting the heat in from the outside. I am pretty sure the bakery has less control over the excessive warmth in their shop than the big box store does, though. I am not sure what demographic the managers who keep the temperature so low in this store are trying to appeal to, but it ain’t me! I have pretty much just resigned myself to wearing an extra layer whenever I go into the store; As much as I complain about the temperature, the prices are amazingly low for quality goods, so I’ll keep coming!
