A “zoo” of a store – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS




Lions, and tigers, and bears. Oh, my! That’s pretty much how I felt grocery shopping yesterday. You know how people sometimes describe busy, crowded places as “a zoo”? Yeah, that’s what it was like. I have no idea why it was so busy. The store was crowded more than I can remember seeing it recently, and the parking lot a little fuller. Even traffic on the streets seemed a bit busier than usual (granted, it was “rush hour” heading out there, but by the time I left the store, “rush hour” was over and it was still busy).

If it had been Wal-mart, I could have understood it. That place always seems to be a zoo. But this was Kroger – and a Kroger Marketplace, at that, and not a regular, full grocery store. And the weekly sale ad as pretty good, but not really outstandingly great. The only thing I can think is that maybe it had something to do with it being the last Friday of the month (and maybe a military payday, I’m not sure). I don’t know.


This rambling post is part of Stream of Consciousness Saturday:

  1. All the big stores are all like that round here at the moment; the tourist (locally, “grockle”) season started on Easter weekend and it’ll stay like that until the end of September now.
