Grocery Store Challenge: Last Call

The "Does Wegmans Rule?" Experiment ends on June 30, and we are still looking for more participants. All that is required is going to a grocery store near you, pricing several items, and sending the results to me and lacochran. I’ll make it even easier for you. Instead of asking you to send an e-mail and then waiting for me to reply with the checklist, I’ve included the checklist in the comments section. While you will not receive the neat badge (pictured to your right and created by Swapping Tales), this will save a step, and show you how easy this experiment really is. Although we would still prefer if you send the results by e-mail to seanramblings(at) and/or lacochran(at), if you really, really want to, you can post your results in the comments.

Have fun!
