Have you been food shopping lately? If so have you shivered through the dairy and produce aisles? Have you ever wondered why the refrigeration aisles in food stores don’t have any doors on them to keep the cool air in? Instead all of that cool air gets shared throughout the the store.
Can this be energy-efficient?
This year as I realized how darn cold it is in these aisles, I started wondering why they leave it so open? Sure it’s easier to browse this way, but in a day and age when conserving electricity and money is and should be all of our concerns, it makes me wonder why they do this. Most of the stores I shop at are quite large, so that cool air can’t really be helping with the air condition. And what about during the winter time? Do they have to turn up the heat to keep customers warm? Doesn’t make sense to me . . .
Do any of you have thoughts on this? Does anyone work at store?
