It is important to understand that all grocery store owners and employees have a duty to ensure that their property is made safe for their customers. This means that frequent checks for hazards or dangerous conditions in the stores must be made. If these investigations are not performed and someone gets injured as a result, the store owner may be held liable for negligence.
