For some reason, while Wikipedia surfing, I ran across the category of Supermarkets of the United States. I found a need to score myself on how many of them I've been to. (43 out of 210, for those interested.) New meme, maybe?


ETA: up to 45 of 210!

1. With the exception of Save Mart you have been to every store that I have, except you have been to many many more.

2. Have you really never been to a Save Mart?

Did we not go to a grocery store while you were in Austin? Because it would have been an HEB.

One of my favorite wedding stories is about HEB.

My friend said, "We needed juice for the baby, so we went to the Heeb. What a nice store!" "The what?" says I. "The Heeb." "Oh, the Jewish grocery!" "REALLY??" says my friend. "No."

The first time I heard someone say Food Lion, I thought it was "food line": I thought they were going down to the soup kitchen to get dinner with the homeless people.

44! Unless I miscounted

I think that my list is right -- there may be some that I'm forgetting because I only went there once or something. But i don't think that I erroneously marked any, even though I'm only going by my own memory (and didn't, say, check to see that X Market was in a state that I'd been to or something).

And, as long as I'm spamming your comments, it's interesting how we've been to nearly completely different supermarket chains. It's because we live and have lived in different places, I'm just surprised that there's not more overlap.

I count 22--though I'm sure I've been to others whose name I don't remember. Also, there is a separate Giant Chain (it might be the carlisle one) that I've been to, and D'Agastino's in New York. Also I've bought groceries at Target and Sam's Club.

I suppose the shortness of my list comes of always having lived in the mid-atlantic.

You have been to both Giant-Carlisle (in PA) and Giant-Landover (in DC). Giant Eagle is in Pittsburgh.

Oh, that was to Andrea, not you. ;)

That said, you've probably been to Giant-Landover and Shoppers Food & Pharmacy when visiting us if you've been to grocery stores. Have you been to grocery stores in central PA to pick up Giant-Carlisle?

I've also been to a lot of random grocery stores in England, Germany, Australia, and France. But they're not on the list. :)

I've been to a lot of these because I am cheap and have traveled extensively in the US, but I couldn't begin to remember the names of the stores. For instance, I visited some grocery chain in Arkansas one night, and another in Oklahoma a few hours later, but I would never be able to recognize the names (unless it was a Piggly Wiggly and that's only because that is the most awesome name of any store ever).

Also, Shop n Save is now officially Hannaford Brothers, which means this list should only be 209. Oh, and every Star Market and Shaws are actually the same now, too, so 208.
