These "tidying announcements" were the topic of the closing segment of KXRK-FM (X96)'s "Radio From Hell" show for about 5 minutes.
The podcast should be available later today.

It was ridiculed to no end.

Audio at 154:15 aka 2 hours, 34 minutes, 15 seconds until close of show.

That's very funny! Love the part about the music and feather duster.

Thanks for posting.

PS: I kid you not, but one of the assistant managers at the local Safeway had a feather duster in his belt.

When I am in QFC, I hear an announcement that goes something like this: “Boop, boop, boop, boop! QFC associates, it’s time for our hourly, sparkle and shine walk!” Or something of that ilk! It is so canned and creepy!

Is there still real “live” paging at Fred Meyer?

Tonight I was at the Fry's Marketplace in Apache Junction and the "Hourly Conditioning" announcement came over the PA. In the bakery the associate was cleaning out the donut case using a feather duster. No singing, though.

Yes, they absolutely still page.

One specific example I can think of is the "closing in 10 minutes" announcement.
