my local IGA shrank the fruit/veg section to add pork products

I was shocked to discover my local IGA had shrunk its already tiny fruit&vegetable section, and put bacon and fried pork rind things in the cleared space.

Shocked, and very, very disappointed. I know I don't live in a rich part of town, but this is really special. And not in a good way.

    It's near easter ( ham, pork rind, ...) and, IMO, it's the crapiest time for vegetables and fruits of the year; go for good quality frozen veggies (even in season, they are often much better than what I can find fresh in many IGA/Metro/Provigo)

    But you should tell the staff about that.

      "fried pork rind things"

      Welcome to Québec. Those would be oreilles de crisse.
