I encountered two aggressive electricity salesmen in the entrance of Kroger this morning. First time to see them there. I’ve seen them in places like Walmart and Target a lot.
I know the financials on it favor the stores but I can’t help but think their customers don’t like it. I’d like to see the internal data on it. The electric provider is paying a nice fee for every sign up so the store has no related expenses other than risking the customer experience.
Do these people bother you guys, too? I completely avoid that area of the store when they’re there. I guess I don’t like people cold-selling me when they know I’m not there to buy their product. Its not like fury. Its more like, “Oh man! Not you again.” I’ve seen them and the Comical set up tables in the exit at HEB. But for some reason that doesn’t irk me.
