If you want to see the world’s largest banana display you need to go no further than Macey’s in Providence. Macey’s has put together what the store claims is the largest display of bananas ever put together at 66,000 pounds.”We wanted to offer a great deal on a healthy treat and took it a step further,” says Brad Bassett, a member of Macey’s Executive Team. Bassett says representatives from Dole visited the store Wednesday morning to verify the claim.The display took several hours to build. “We had eight or 10 people helping to set this up late last night,” says Bassett, “including six from that came up from Salt Lake.” The display is about 40′ long, 12′ wide and 10′ high and is comprised of 1650 cases of bananas.
