This Little Piggy Went to Market

If you follow me on twitter, you may have thought I was kidding when I tweeted last night that today's blogger preview event at the new supermarket in town was the most relevant PR pitch I'd seen all year. If only. The fact is, no matter how thoroughly I plan, I am in Kroger a minimum of three times a week. It is my significant other.

"The grocery store is not my happy place," I grumble, when I meet someone I know in the aisle. But if the new store were my store, and I was always went to it with a fun group of bloggers, and all the department managers came out to feed us exotic fruits and sushi and pastries, it definitely would be.

I came home with a full belly, aching feet, and a little bag of goodies. And I didn't have to do any math in my head or use a single coupon.

Here's my slideshow, if you're curious what happens when you wave food on toothpicks in front of women bloggers (think "Shark Week"). Be sure to click on the first image to turn on the captions.

I love the big Kroger Marketplace. I love to sample the cheese.

I took a tour similar to this in the last city I lived in. But the grocery store I toured wasn't a supermarket, but rather a locally-based grocery. And there were only three of us and the manager on said tour.

Yeah, I loved my grocery store. I wish I cold find an equivalent here; we shop at a supermarket now.
