So how is everyone dealing with the grocery store strike? I've been going to Trader Joe's and have made a couple trips to the pricy carpeted grocery store where all the rich old ladies shop as it's convenient. Mangoes $3.99! Avocados $3.99! Sure there are ethnic groceries where you can pick up this and that, but now I need basic stuff. So I will be heading down to an actual independent grocer in a neighborhood a friend of mine used to live in.
Once again my hackles are raised about how many truly independent businesses there are anymore.
