I grew up in the military and had only went to the base commissaries growing up. I never went to a civilian grocery store. When I was 18 and moved to Oregon, my older sister took great delight in taking me to Safeway, the local grocery store. I never know that these stores had bakeries, delis, a floral dept....I was blown away lol. People must of thought I was keep locked in a dark basement.....
Me: Oh my gosh!! Fresh doughnuts!!!
My sister: I know its so cool.
Me: Is this how it is in all these store?!?
My sis: Yes, and some are even better then others.
Also, there were no baggers. At the commissaries there are always baggers and long lines at the checkouts.
