  • I was in a Riteaid looking for a product known as Baby Ayr. I looked in the baby section, not there. I looked in the cold section, found the nasal sprays subsection, not there. I asked at the desk. No luck. This took me over half an hour.

    I went about finding my other items and noticed that at the back of the cold section they seemed to have the children's cold stuff there. Look around, and yup, they had Baby Ayr!

    I felt vindicated when my mother-in-law went to buy Baby Ayr from the same store. She looked and looked, and could not find it. She got an employee to come and look as well, and after 15 minutes he gave up as well. She called me, I walked in and walked right up to it. Both were flabbergasted that they had it after all.

    The fundamental problem is that they can only index one way, and they don't cross-index. So if you can't guess how they've organized, you could be in for a long search.
