How about a meeting area in every other aisle so that customers can talk in an area to the side of an aisle thus allowing others to pass. A trolly "traffic warden" could direct talkers to one of these areas so that congestion is minimised.

Jutta is right - it is more a lanes idea http://www.halfbake...dea/trolley_20lanes
.........as opposed to an area for people to chat [po, Jan 25 2002]

       An interesting idea, but it'll never happen.

       I don't think it would be very long before the supermarkets used the extra space for setting up more merchandise displays.

       You have three grandfathers?

       Yes. Paternal, Maternal, Step-Maternal. The Step-Grandfather was the one referred to. Oddly enough, I came back to this idea because it occured to me that someone, saaaaaay hippo might come along...

       Agh - rumbled!

       How odd that all three grandfathers own supermarkets. The same one, or three different ones?

       po, if you've seen this on the halfbakery, a link would be nice. (I don't remember seeing this particular measure of "meeting areas", although there were suggestions for lane systems.)
