Is it the intention of "big box" stores to make it difficult for people to find there way around the store? I have noticed that only major sections are marked in these types of stores. For example the signs will just say "Bath", "Outdoor", "Electronics". Is this because they want you to spend more time in the store looking around for what you want because then you might purchase more?Hanging signs is costly so I agree that it seems unlikely this is an accident, but I don't know the answer. It is impractical to list everything in an isle, but not particularly helpful when it is so vague, so what is the profit maximizing level of clarity for isle labels of the big box stores?
