What a time to be alive.
The security measure may stop sticky-fingered thieves from slipping a few Top Decks into their pockets, or snacking between aisles, but it also makes buying the items a huge pain.
Customers are reportedly forced to wait for register attendants to unlock the cases at the counter if they plan on purchasing a block.
If you’ve never bought something from one of those cases, you’ll know the interaction will probably go a little like this:
“Hi. I’d like to buy a $5 block of chocolate.”
“Oh yes, no problem….”
*Turns to the person behind them* “John… John! Do you have a key for this….”
“Key for what?”
“The chocolate boxes.”
“THE CHOCOLATE BOXES.”
Case. In. Point. (Or is it a point in a case?)
Watch: If the security cases proves too much, you can always make these bad boys at home. (Post continues after video.)
