Sam's Wine New Layout Rant

Chicago Mike | Feb 20, 2004 01:08 AM

At this point I consider Sam's new layout to be a step backward... Reasons: 1) they've eliminated the "central wine info desk"...not that I ever got much info there but it was great decor if nothing else... they had good selection of references, etc. 2) They are "doubling up" on some regions. Like there's 2 Australian rows which is very confusing... and one is out of the box only, not very effecient, doesn't nearly hold their old selection... the new metal shelving rows do hold more than the old racks, but they're only about 1/3 of the total layout...

the wider lanes are a major improvement... you can actually wheel two shopping carts down a lane at the same time. My biggest gripe of old layout was the impossibly narrow old lane, but I'd still back to them over the current layout.
