merchandising department: how to sell cheese

how to sell cheese

While researching an upcoming Historicist article, I flipped through a stack of issues of The Link, an in-house magazine for employees of Dominion grocery stores from the mid-1920s. Besides corporate gossip, inspirational poetry from the likes of Kipling, announcements of new store openings and updates on how recreational sports teams were doing, there was an occasional article on food handling and merchandising. Today's tips come from the July 15, 1924 edition. Remember: nobody likes dry Kraft cheese. - JB
