A very old neighborhood was growing into a great location for real estate. All the old homes were demolished into beautiful big mansions. There was a small grocery store in that area that everyone knew and it always covered even the smallest necessities of that expanse.
They started to build a supermarket exactly across that grocery store. That wasn’t good news for the owner of the store.
The grocery store owner was very concerned as it was his only way he made a living. The grocery owner tried to find the supermarket’s owner and talk to him about how much his supermarket would destroy his business.
The supermarket owner was a very kind man and promised him that he would solve this problem.
Less than a year passed and the supermarket opened and started the business.
People in the neighborhood, of course, walked to the supermarket to shop and the grocery store owner was so sad and worried.
People filled their carts with a variety of things but they couldn’t find eggs, dairy, and bread.
It was very rare to walk to a supermarket and not be able to see these common commodities. They went to the management and asked the reason.
The owner said: “The grocery across sells bread, eggs, and dairies. It wasn’t our specialty.”
Dairy, bread, and eggs are people’s everyday necessities, so they went to the grocery to buy them. The grocery owner realized how fair that deal was and started to change his grocery to a dairy, bread, and eggs shop.
His sales were even better than before.
“God bless you, my rich competitor, instead of ruining my business you grew it for the better.” The old man said.
