Wait till Coors instructs stores always to always keep their product in the back row and only in the back row so that it would taste coldest.

Iíve worked beer retail for several years now and I constantly see customers do this:

1) Take out six pack from cooler
2) Grab six pack behind it
3) Replace first six pack

Why?

Most are average, non-beer savvy customers... I donít think theyíre worried about the beer being light-struck, but itís a possibility... so what?

Do they think itís colder?
Do they think itís fresher?

I would ask, but I donít want to be a dick. Not that Iíd be a dick to ask, but I fear that theyíd give me their response and I would feel obligated to tell them theyíre wrong.

What do we think?


Itís the same thing with milk bro. Try not to be so arrogant though. itís not like their wrong. I try and look for a bottled dated whenever i buy and ipa to see if itís fresher.

If itís an open cooler, obviously take it from the back if you want something colder. Itís a bigger issue with milk as the ones nearest the outside could have been warm for a long period.

As a customer, after I pick something out I actually have a habit of moving more of that item forward so the employee doesnít have to. Hell, Iím already standing there and I donít mind.

I had to unlearn this habit after years of watching my mom grab crates of eggs and milk, unshelving them and grabbing the rear ones and then reshelving all of the ones now scattered on the floor. "Just getting the one with the later expiration date"

O_o
