I find it offensive that some stores have such an attitude. I love cheese and find it fun to buy several varieties, but to do that I like to get 1/4lb or 1/3lb wedge of each. Ideal won't let you do that, they make a big stink about store policy and they have done it this way for over 50 years. So I get bigger wedges and end up tossing cheese away.
This store is only 2 blocks from me and has a great selection, but I will gladly walk the 10 blocks and go to Murrays. I wish others were also fed up with their arrogance
