    I wonder how many shoppers you had? Then I could figure out how many bananas each shopper bought, on average.
    (And I’m sure I bought nearly 4 lbs of Mt.Vikos Feta on my own! Maybe you sold 40?)

      Hi Melissa – We can tell you how much Mt. Vikos feta we sold: 130.4 lbs! We will look into seeing how many shoppers bought bananas….

  2. One of the important points about the bulk almond, cashew, peanut, & sunflower seed butter is only in the bulk form do they not contain added salt. The jarred versions usually contain added salt. This is particularly important for individuals who might have a tendency to have high blood pressure or other “high salt related conditions.”

    Using this data Abundance should be encouraging its customers to purchase other related products.

    Many customers do not try nut butters other than peanut butter (no matter what the form). Perhaps some type of limited incentive for people to try different products. This will be particularly important when Abundance moves to South Ave.
