Smith's Marketplace: No-No to ruining Halloween. Yesterday, one of us arrived at the Smith's Marketplace in West Jordan just as two young boys and their father did. The boys were jumping around, so excited to get Halloween costumes they could barely stand it. When the doors slid open, they froze, their enthusiasm transforming into a disappointed keening. What upset them so much? The display: Christmas trees, blinking lights, fake snow, the whole works. That's right: a Christmas display in September. No-no, Smith's Marketplace.
us those kids of the coolest holiday just because you do 70 percent of your business at Christmas time. This is how your display should look this time of year (example via Shopko):
Souper! Salad!: No-No to Souper! Bad! Service! Bad service? Beat this: (1) After waiting several minutes, having to hunt someone down at the designated Employee Chat Table to ask if you could please pay so that you could in fact start the dining process; (2) mid-way through one's meal, having to flag down someone else's server to ask if you might possibly receive the drink that you paid for; (3) once said drink is consumed, having to accost a manager to ask if you might possibly have a refill before you die. No-No, Souper!Salad!
