I went to fill my gallon jug at Ralph’s last week, and the machine was gone! As were all the potted plant racks outside near the entrance.
I was told the city would not allow sales of items displayed outside the store. I can understand the city not wanting items displayed outside stores, on public sidewalks. But the area outside is part of their property, not a public sidewalk! There is obviously no room inside that crowded store to put a water machine.
Sooo…we have to drive out of town (in the horrendous traffic these days) to fill our water jug…or buy a gallon jug of water in the store and end up with empty plastic bottles to get rid of? Ridiculous!
