Speculating is fun!

I was shopping and Real Canadian Superstore today and noticed that for every dairy item I checked, the newest items were at the front of the racks; the old stock was buried at the back.

Is this because of a lazy stock boy or is there something more interesting going on?  I like to think that in a secret bunker below the Superstore distribution centre off Marine Drive in Vancouver their operations research team spend their days hatching different plans to foil “milkmaids”.  Maybe they’re latest plan exploits customers’ expectation that the stock on the back of each shelf is the freshest and they’ve decided to bury the oldest stock there where we’ll dig it out and buy it first. 

That would be sly.
