Jewel Osco Shopping Carts in Snow

After the first significant snowfall for Arlington Heights, Jewel-Osco at 122 North Vail Avenue showed significantly poorer snow removal at one of its shopping cart corrals compared to other stores. The downtown Jewel-Osco is a precious venue for shopping and groceries in downtown Arlington Heights — especially for residents in downtown Arlington Heights. Many people in town have a little guilt about their lack of loyalty toward Jewel when shopping at Mariano’s Fresh Market. And many are rooting for the Vail Avenue Jewel-Osco to stay competitive.

A great many of residents that shop at 122 North Vail are elderly and have a little trouble getting around on foot. For that reason, and to stay in the game with Mariano’s, the downtown Jewel-Osco should be the best at snow removal — not the worst.

Since mid-summer Mariano’s has upped the game with excellent customer service and effort on behalf of staff and store amenities. Jewel-Osco has hard-working dedicated staff, too. But their local manager, might make sure that the first impression of the parking lot demonstrates excellence in customer service, too. The staff would surely be better off if they didn’t have to drag a train of shopping carts through three inches of snow.

CLEAN: Northpoint Jewel-Osco shopping cart about the noon hour Saturday.

Mariano’s Fresh Market shopping cart corral — partially helped by a roof over the corral.

Dominick’s at Palatine Road and Arlington Heights Road about the noon hour Saturday.

Trader Joe’s shopping cart corral about the noon hour Saturday.

Not all of the shopping cart corrals were as bad at 122 North Vail Avenue as the top picture, but they were still worse than all other stores checked.

This shopping cart corral at 122 North Vail Avenue (photo from Saturday) was still in bad shape Sunday/Monday, just after midnight.
