“This local chain grocery store is very unique, and worth a visit if you have never been. Complete with a petting zoo, singing mechanical animals and characters, and aisles set up like a corn maze; it's sort of Tarantino meets National Lampoon's. Beyond the interesting experience, the food and prices are both really good. We do most of our regular grocery shopping here.”
