    Remember when it was normal to shake someone’s hand when you see them.

    3 stores that I have heard of, but never seen. There aren't any in New England. There are a lot of food chains that aren't up here either.

    I wonder how many know what exactly A & P stands for? Hint: It is not for going to the A and pee.

    Yup!

    We had a nice one not so far from us. They closed back in the early 70's and discounted the food way down. People were on that sale like crows on a deer carcass...... or a preview of black friday things to come!!

    Used to get produce trimmings for the rabbits from them. I miss that store.
