(Daily Mail)   If Iceland is as great as everyone says, then why do grocery stores there have to put their lamb and cheese in anti-theft security boxes?   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 58

I think subby needs get put into a security box for not reading the article that he just linked to. Iceland?

It'll be a lot less cool in the next decade or so when thefts and burglaries for groceries surges in the US.

You do realize that the "Iceland" in the article is a UK supermarket chain, and no actual residents of the nation of Iceland are referred to in the story?

The nation of "Iceland", unlike the UK ..actually has people who work, and are willing to work. UK so full of Third Worlders and lazies no surprise that the supermarket chain has to lock the lamb cooler. Wonder what Waitrose has to do to keep thefts under control...

We put security tags on Porterhouse, T-bones, etc. at the store I work in. Plus on Tide detergent, and anything small and pricey(read athlete's foot medication, other OTC) is in a security box or behind the counter. Store is a mile from the ghetto. Need a flashlight to see at the first of the month.

Poor people do not shop in Waitrose, so they would stick out like a sore thumb.

Anyway, Waitrose is pretty substandard as far as food goes. Nothing you cannont get in tescos, just twice the price. It's not as bad as M&S, though, is mostly processed ready meal crap. M&S is for snobs that cant cook.

Did he find the only leg of lamb in a security box? Because the freezer he's in front of in the picture seems to be full of unboxed meat.

The security devices are like happy tiny little houses for meat. Egg crates are little egg apartments. But why must each egg live by themselves in each egg apartment? They must be lonely.

Sad tag hungover from Turkey Day. The great socialist experiment of Iceland now taxes its people so much that food and gas are now unaffordable.

I beg to differ. Waitrose has lots of great items often at reduced prices (due to upcoming expiration dates) - I often cook based on what ingredients are reduced on a given day - they have a much better range of veg than Tescos and if you shop carefully comes out being more economical, particularly in comparison to Tesco Express or Tesco Metro.

For meat, however, all of the supermarkets are rubbish. Overpriced, water-laden crap for the most part. Thankfully there are lots of butcher shops around.

As has been pointed out by a few farkers for the benefit of Muricans who have never been beyond the borders of the USofA (most) the article is referencing a British supermarket chain, and not the country. BTW, Iceland freezer stores have a reputation in the UK of being "ghetto".

Hilarious parody of Iceland TV commercial

Yeah, now it's "FRY ALL THE THINGS". Let's 'ave a chip buttty! Scotch eggs anyone? Is there any part of a full english breakfast that isn't fried ... letsee, bacon, eggs, tomato, mushrooms, bread, sausage, black pudding or fried hash browns ... I guess there's a reason it's called the 'fry up' (left out baked beans...)

To be fair, tastes lots better than just boiling it.
 
2012-11-23 10:34:45 AM
I used to work at a discount supermarket right next to a Ghetto, I've seen some pretty clever shiat.

1) One lady would switch the tags on meat to something less expensive, she'd match the bar codes perfectly so the only way to catch it would be if the cashier was paying close attention to the computer behind her.

2) Had a guy in a jacket, unzipped, and was walking out the store. My manager walks buy him, slips her hand in his jacket and takes out a big package of pork chops. He was holding it up with his hand in his pocket.

3) First of the month *shudder*, the hoards of people.
