The current wave of terrorist attacks has officially hit supermarket sales. Nielsen figures show that consumers bought 7 percent less food and groceries during the first two weeks of October as more Israelis choose to stay home because of the security situation.

Online sales,however, rose by double digits. But their jump did not suffice to make up for the overall gap from the drop in store sales. In that same period, online orders increased 30%.

The increase focused on several categories frequented by parents of young children and on perishable goods. For example, sales of baby formula jumped 151%.

The ongoing produce shortage, which was strongly felt during Succot, and the high prices of vegetables have also affected sales.

Sales of fruit and vegetable dropped (21%), as did cottage cheese (17.8) and bread (12.6%).

Other products that recorded a notable drop included dairy (6.5%), packaged salads (5.5%), oil and vinegar (6.2%) and fresh milk (5.5%).

I have dealt with people starting from my teen years whether it was a junior counselor position, volunteering in community centers for the elderly, working as a secretary and as a real estate agent. Dealing with the public is a learning experience and challenging. Someone once told me that a person can learn from every being they meet whether it be a child or a stranger they met for 2 minutes. This I hold true. I have met so many people and have learned a lot and keep learning. My father who ran his own business made it a point to provide good service to all his customers no matter how small the customer. I hope to offer quality, honesty, and result in happy customers whether they are sellers, buyers, or renters.
