This was one of those odd item encounters when it comes to as sale you do not expect. Today I wen to the grocery store and near the entrance there was this huge box with a sign that seemed to indicate it was deeply discounted to be sold. I guess due to the type of business you would expect something say kitchen related. But upon further inspection this appeared to be a treadmill. If we were to go by the sign, it indicates that you would save about $750 as they appear to want to simply clear it out this Everlast EV2.5 Treadmill.
I haven’t done my research for the item to really know the value, but it makes me wonder how often would someone go to the supermarket to buy groceries only to then make an impulse purchase and bring home a treadmill? While that seems far fetched, what was realistic is how even I felt maybe I knew someone who is looking for one and so I proceeded to take a picture and share my findings.
Maybe that shows it never hurts to put an item for sale in a business that doesn’t normally carry such items as the word of mouth advertising can spread organically. I know there is the argument where it would actually hurt a business as well. Then again, even nowadays I see electronic stores sell drinks and snacks as if it is a grocery store. I wouldn’t be surprised if they start to sell things like mattresses after.
A lot of retail stores have actually made their business models to be like a showroom of sort where many companies lease out spaces to show off and sell their products. So in that regards it isn’t too surprising as well that many companies are trying to sell everything as long as the vendor pays for it per se.
