Our local grocery store just went out of business. My sister and I went in to shop when there were just 7 days left and there was hardly any merchandise left in the store. It was so empty and it was sad. Am I weird or do you guys get sad at things like this too?
here to read about that).We picked out corsages for their dates for the homecoming dances and prom here. My husband bought my birthday cakes here. This was the store that always donated something to our local schools for different fundraisers. This is where I would always run into at least five people I knew and many times I would stop to shoot the breeze with them and catch up on the latest news.
The good news is that another store will be coming in and the whole community is hoping it will be one that offers cheaper prices, but regardless, our town needs a store like this for not only the food, but for the people. It's kind of like if you imagined our town as a human body, the local grocery store is the heart.
