About five years ago I was standing outside a store. Two executives from a supermarket chain had just walked out of it and were talking. I know they were from this chain because they loudly mentioned it. Never hear my cell when I’m on Broadway. People have to be screaming for me to hear the conversation.
The executives were overly huffed with tres stupid pride as they stood outside their limo.
“This store. It’s so dirty. The aisles are too close together. The vegetables don’t look right….”
They went on and on talking about all the reasons the customers would desert that store for their modern supermarket chain.
“Fools,” I thought, this is Fairway. Haven’t you done the slightest research?”
The “new” supermarket is going out of business, I think. Was in it to buy an extension cord. Wouldn’t have bought anything half-fresh as the seafood department and other fresh food departments were closed.
Fairway has opened new stores on Long Island, and Red Hook, Broadway. They already had the Fairway super store in Harlem. Fairway purposely makes the aisles small, and dirty. But the fresh food turns over constantly. It was called the best source for store sushi by a large New York magazine; and it’s probably true because they have to keep making it.
There’s a moral to this but I’m not sure what it is. It’s difficult for me to blog and to make the rounds this week.
To the people who were four tables away from us at Sarabeths, your conversation about mortgage brokers might have been fascinating to you, but….
Wednesday I will have the stitches taken off. Because it’s been a two year process and my teeth looked okay, I don’t feel the sense of accomplishment having dental implants should give me.
Maybe it’s something that I have to get used to. It’s difficult for me not to be hard on myself because I’m just so good at it…
It’s supposed to be sunny on Wednesday July 5th. Really tried today. I was impressed.
