I was ecstatic when I opened my e-mail today and read a press release that Woolworths stores will be removing sweets and chocolates from their checkout aisles.
Never mind nagging kids in tow, keeping my hands off some of those forbidden, delectable goodies has often left me cursing under my breath and walking out a rather unhappy customer.
The official line is that it is part of their “Good Food Journey” strategy. I’m glad for that. So, well done Woolworths for leading the way. I can’t wait to walk into the revamped food stores in my area.
Now, if other chain stores follow suit, I’m pretty sure there will be a many more content consumers out there.
