For Free???


Galiano Italiano Grocery Store has a counter outside, under the wooden awning.

When the store’s open, the counter displays products for sale.

When the store closes, staff do a switcheroo, putting out stuff they’re giving away.  (That’s right–a grocery store giving food away!)

Today it was a loaf of unsliced bakery bread and a big bunch of asparagus.

Other days, it’s a bag of apples, a small pumpkin or few tomatoes.

I guess it’s stuff that won’t last another business day.

It’s such a simple idea that makes so much sense.

My only question is why aren’t other, larger stores doing this?
