Let your eyes do the shopping for you

Shopping for groceries, we all have done it and we all know it can be one of the most mundane tasks out there. You go into the store and look around and get lost if it isn’t the local location you usually walk into. Everything seems to be in an obscure spot placed next to an item that doesn’t belong in that section — at least not logically.

Then, you may wander into a Trader Joe’s. Notice anything different about it? The free samples or the smiling employees in their Hawaiian shirts? Or, the difference could just be the way this store implements the use of paint on the walls. For me, this “mini murals” add spunk and a nice visual to make shopping for food not such a tedious task. Also, it provides a clear path to what may be in that section. Look around a Trader Joe’s and take in the design; it’ll spruce up your life.

I have added a map of some Trader Joe’s locations in San Francisco and provided photos of the mural to the entrance of the Trader Joe’s by the Stonestown mall right next to SF State. This mural has the campus in it, Lake Merced, and Stern Grove.
