Pomegranates are not often seen in supermarkets but there were some yesterday. I couldn't get near the shelf that was holding the fruits. A lady and her maid were there ahead of me and they were trying to get some squeezing almost every fruit. I gave up in the end.
When out shopping at supermarkets, I'd make it a point never to go near closing time for obvious reasons. Even though more checkout counters would be open for service, the queues outdo the cashiers as the lines get longer than the cashiers can clear them.
And God-forbid if there is a hiccup such as an item not having a price-tag or an argument on pricing or worse still if there is a power failure. Have you ever encountered this scenario? I do wonder if barcode scanners would still work with the inhouse generator. If they don't, we would all have to abandon our purchases. What a letdown..
