It’s the end of a bovine era. …my favorite Pick n Save is closing and the mooing cow that has sat above the dairy section for decades, will entertain kids (and likely, annoy staff), no more.
When you press the button on the wall, the cow would bellow loud enough to hear from anywhere in the grocery store. And like a monkey in a cage pressing the food-pellet button, kids would of course press multiple times, as if they were sending a bizarre, super-slow cow Morse code message, like “there’s a sale on string cheese” or “mom I want chocolate milk!!!”.
I doubt we’ll see such entertainment in a store again; added overhead that offers no value or revenue. But I might have to stop by when they start disassembling the store and make them an offer on push-button Bessie – that cow would make a great doorbell.
I’m just glad the kids got to enjoy it earlier this summer / before it was taken down…
