  1. *Student research assistants did not record quality points for stores 1008 and 1049. It is likely that each store would have gained up to 6 more points had the quality of the fresh fruits and vegetables at each store been recorded. All four stores with zero quality points offered none of the ten identified fresh fruits or vegetables.
