Every night on my way home from work I pass a brand new, 24 hour grocery. Every night I think, I should stop in there, but I really want to get home. I wanted to get home tonight, too, but I stopped in anyway, as I made out the shopping list for Thanksgiving dinner and I wanted to check out the produce department in the new store.
That is one pretty produce department, LOL! Everything is bright and colorful and pristine.
The problem with shopping at 4am is that there are stockers blocking the aisles with pallets full of merchandise. The floor buffer guys are hard at work and the noise level is pretty high. I think a couple employees offered to help me but I couldn't actually hear them. I'm used to all that, though, cause I often stop at the store after work. What I had a hard time with were the shelf tags.
How long has bread cost $4.89 a loaf?
I don't often buy bread, and the loaf I picked up today was for Bro, who likes whole grain stuff. The white was a bit cheaper. When I do buy bread I get artisan sourdough from Walmart's bakery - makes great toast - and that runs about $2.50 for a large loaf. We needed some soup for a casserole, too, and that was $1.39. Last time I bought soup it was under a dollar. They had Snapple on sale, so I got a 6 pack of diet raspberry tea, and along with the soup and bread that was all I bought. The prices seemed too steep for any more shopping. I guess that's the tradeoff for a really pretty produce department.
