Thought for the Week

An Ode to Fred Meyer

You’ve served me well for 17 years, but now it’s time for me to move on.

I can’t say I’m sorry to see you disappear from my life.

The new ‘improvements’ you’ve made means I now spend twice as much time on my grocery shopping. And why did you do away with some of my favorite items, only to add more unhealthy pop and flavored waters?

The checkout stands with a moving belt sound like a good idea on paper, but when there’s no one at the end of the belt to bag up the groceries it means the checker has to come out of her station to bag them. And the weighing device in the bulk items area is often not working or out of paper. For a brand new machine this is disgraceful.

You’ve done some things right – I love the idea of giving free fresh fruit to children and the fresh produce area is very nice.

But now it’s time for me to move on. Rosauers – here I come!

Rosauers Grocery and Pharmacy will open this weekend with all kinds of specials events and sales. Come and check it out!
