They're just another trick they use to get you to buy more. Consumer behavior studies have proven time and time again that consumers are inclined to buy more products if they got to sample them first. They know that the second you munched on their tasty "free" treats, they landed a sale.

#8. The second you walk into a store, you stumble into vibrant and bold-colored produce items that usually put customers in a great mood.

But this, of course, is no coincidence either. The trick is to greet customers with a visual display of temptations, like beautiful product displays, bright-colored items, and lovely bouquets.
