In a previous post I made mention of the fact that many stores do little to challenge obesity. Wide aisles allow easy access to cakes and pies. Not exactly the most pro-active way of challenging gluttony.
With this in mind, a recent trip to Dunelm did much to improve my opinion of the endeavours of retailers in the fight against obesity. Dunelm cunningly placed their cafeteria on the top floor. Not only does this force the chubsters to climb the stairs, thus burning additional calories, but they also had the foresight to place steel posts at the top of the stairs to restrict access. Anyone exceeding a certain mass would be unable to pass between the posts.
Well played Dunelm!
