A few weeks ago, I started noticing that popcorn, the kind you pop in a pan, was always out of stock at my local Safeway (Inner Richmond). The last time I was there, the space where the popcorn used to be was filled in with yet more brands of microwave popcorn.
Today I was in Mill Valley, and decided to see if I could pick up some popcorn at that Safeway. They had 32 (I counted) types of microwave popcorn, and no regular popcorn. I asked, and was told that they "reset" the section the night before, and they were no longer carrying regular popcorn.
Am I alone in thinking this is absurd? Can I be the only one who enjoys real popcorn, and thinks it shouldn't be a specialty store kind of item?
Has anyone else noticed popcorn missing from their local stores?
