Started out just for a couple plans for a family and it just expanded it expanded over the years now a hobby turned into a big hobby yes and now it's like wow almost more time. Poor guy who's retired from his latest turn into yet and soda blueberries to be have the the outright ground so there's. And go read it I don't really letters that are related content. All right I've revised my list but I actually have a list of thirteen. Supermarkets. Our grocery stores right here in Charlotte deed go to any timing isn't on everything that you need. Not everything but just about all right here's the list and I'm in no particular order just as they came to mind the first one probably the most recent is legal. Him and I mean in the one down and so Charlotte a couple of times. They don't have a lot of bring names other gaining more mostly to slowly increasing. But they have but what they have is very inexpensive. And their brand names are very expensive and it all seems a decent quality of brooding quality. They especially have a great bakery they were they big things themselves. And the prices are broke are causing others like Wal-Mart. I mean to take exempt 36 and thirty cents I know a dozen times in a gallon more for 64 cents right. So that's relatively new to the more chance that they out of Germany here yep. They're gonna they're gonna really dark room till this market towards lower prices for sure leader in legal and I know their busy. The other one. That's been around before them their predecessor almost in the same manner is all the my. These are those around for awhile on her head and there at the same thing low pricing especially no name or their own name brand and limited. Variety of brands I shouldn't say. But low low prices are part of me still charge or quarter to use the a shopping cart essar where they did I found out Australia at a at a at an immediate quarterback is dead now yeah yeah yeah you put it back infineon and with the help each quarter buffer that's a riot. I don't buy low given on violent years ago yeah we used to because by us that was in the Diallo when Harris teeter and of course as was the viral ad that points are Charlotte. That was 145. Individuals enrolled us while ago if they're based out of Greenville yes Caroline yes Mulva probably edits an historic. On the one bug bounce or Charlotte aren't they don't have many people and actually vote line about food lion yes it's been a while but oh my gosh I don't think they've really Rihanna have their stores haven't yes sir I shall be one painful moment and once they've done a lot of work lottery magic check you know because I had that's been for ever. About his birth fair I don't know if there's more than one or two when does the rundown and so Charlotte into Burlington. And I'm in a couple times never had a couple. Vicious with a low scores on inspections and things and even when I bought something wasn't pleased with so I haven't been in their often but that's more of a you know for a store specializing as does. I'm hopeful Jews say you know again it's just a lot of organic yes who do you take home that's it and then sprouts has opened down south Charlotte that's got to be the most recent. And I do like them. Really great produce. They have a lot a huge a selection of organics and then there was huge selection of non organic. And then everything else they've apple deli they have meets they have seafood. They they have you know bakery stuff items they don't do it there but they know they have lots of bakery items and all kinds stuff and I think they have more locations come and around here too I think so -- or expand I like them and they they are very reasonably priced. As a co produce market. Their deficit principal in the food stands to produce stands and sums of they have just gorgeous or we're really pleased. Then you got like our reads Marie by fruit yes sir who lost a lot of resistance has now flourishing there they're doing well they're great. For locally produced food items if you want presence made locally yes sir they probably haven't. This sort of guard take column to get wiser flat bridge oh yeah really good yes and whole foods also is good at an all out. Providing locally. Produced. A food items visit you bringing in their and they like it. They'll put it in their store here locally oh man which is really cool so raids bring a product if they like it and you little labeling everything correct. It's up to speed you can get to their stupor and Reid's head. Maryland crab dip that was cool rebel last summer having power out of a big a lot crap from Ireland and scallions and she's yes a seasoning it was really good. And then there's fresh market which smell the obvious based on the greens from yes they have really good meats and seafood as well there are no more than they do have rhino is being their cribs fresh from him right there directs them. Behind the Nikkei and they're also we'll have North Carolina shrimp yes from the yes it's usually pretty fresh very fresh to manifest their seafood is outstanding careers there's. I've got an excellent or very whatever it is there are really good stuff and if so they do a good job yeah. Our Wal-Mart. If I'm gonna buy brand name canned goods and products that don't Monty whatever hunts. I don't know how many of them there so there once a week to get the staples yes. And for the most part to produce can be very good it sometimes it's not so great. Would you release good. Our prices are of course are always great that's what drives us down there remains you know. The name's Eric yes exactly major and the things that don't matter and that could run a great value and that's you know even the milk the exam means yes some of the staples. It's fine with me but I don't have any problem with the great value brand name. Of the things that we want that we like to brand name yes then I'll buy it there but it's funny because sometimes a plastic wrap all of a sudden you drop by theirs and you know what. Is better than the other brand name a big hard work I just never know she just keep trying yes right that's all OT Tara but all of those places. Have all the different foods. That's thirteen. Yeah a lot it is. And then if you want other specialty foods. But for instance when we may despite Serbs for those means that we smoked. I'll go to marshall's home goods movement and they'll have.

I inadvertently gave her what was the spicy. Path through the smoke spicy smoked paprika thin blue. If baby boy yeah. It was really. Spicy and I apologist but as delicious concern said this so yes but anyway they have that and if you like the peppercorns and want to mix different peppercorns. Sir I'm good that marshall's home goods. So they don't but he's he just he just never know.
