Going inside you first see the cashier stations with the constant long lines in each lane, farther in you see the many aisles that are stocked full of products. As the store is busy, individuals are closely beside each other, maneuvering in and out of aisles trying to avoid bumping into one another. The long lines have caused people to squish closely together as people are trying to utilize and use as much space as they can. Passing individuals in the aisles can prove to be a challenge or a hassle to individuals with bags or other items, the space in the aisles are about less than two steps or under a meter and with unopened stacked boxes in the aisles, it adds to the difficulty of moving around. With so many products in the store, objects are very close to each other and everything is jammed and packed beside each other. The general experience of the visit was insightful when observing you are able to witness the way of life for a moment and experience another person’s life or culture for a second. Doing the unobtrusive observations was interesting, I got to experience and gain some knowledge about a culture I did not have a ton of information and involvement in. Looking back there weren’t any surprises but it was interesting how both spots were similar in the sense both had a lot of inventory/product in and out of the store, both sites were hard to move around in because of the lack of space and both had excessive items in the sense that there was inventory hanging from the ceilings or on top of the freezers. At the moment I wouldn’t like to make any a conclusion yet, as a tentative working hypothesis, yes there are some similarities in the culture or way something operates and how the space is being utilized with the great amount of product, but it is only two locations and I don’t think that is enough to make a final statement for.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
