Week 6 Barbara was a regular shopper at Egeeay Supermarket, which was part of a large nationwide supermarket chain. She was there at least once a week and sometimes more often if the specials were really good. When Barbara was there this week, she slipped on some grapes in the pet-food section in aisle 3, slipping and falling, and breaking her ankle. The store manager was not sure how the grapes got there or how long they had been there, but store policy was to do checks every 15 minutes of the floor in the fruit section. The store manager indicated that there were a number of spillages every week in the green grocery section of the store. The store owner wishes to know: a) Whether Egeeay Supermarket owes a duty of care to Barbara? (3.5 marks, maximum 200 words) b) If they do, has it breached that duty of care? (3.5 marks, maximum 200 words) c) Whether your answer would be different if Barbara had slipped on some grapes in the fruit section of the store. (3 marks, maximum 150 words)
