the superstore is where it’s at

Posted on February 3, 2006. Filed under: Uncategorized |

The place to be is apparently the new superstore. I just went to pick up some groceries tonight and saw one close friend from highschool (though I didn’t talk to her…oops), 2 of the most annoying girls from highschool (together and pushing baby carriages — with babies in them!), some of my little brother’s hoodlum friends, a guy I used to babysit, and my uncle! Yikes! This was all within 15 minutes. So either I know too many people in this town or the town really is staying small despite all the ugly rows of crappy housing going up by the minute.

At a house we lived in about 7 years ago, the town had a grand opening for a Cub Foods, a large grocery chain in Minnesota. The WHOLE town was there except for the 3 checkers at the mom and pop grocery across the street. Hasn’t changed since, except more houses like the ones by you.

Is the mom and pop store still open? That’s the depressing part. A lot of local businesses will suffer. Our fruit market that has been here forever already closed before the superstore even opened! I mean our town has grown a lot in the last 10 years (40,000 or so now), but it used to at least have a sense of community — one that was actually kind of nice and now it’s stuck in this sort of nothingness in between the city and a town environment — just sprawl. I’ll either have to move to a super big city or a really small town.
