Woodman's Market Compliment - Wow! A long-lost concept seen today!
CARPENTERSVILLE, ILLINOIS -- So, today was the day Baby Clutzy and I do our grocery shopping. As usual, I started my trip at Woodman's and filled up my cart. As the cashier was handing me my receipt, she asked me "would you like curbside pickup?" Huh? I haven't had anyone load my groceries for me in my entire adult life! I remember back in the day when my mom would go to the store, they had the bag boys who would haul your bags out to the car for you, but that had to have been 15-20 years ago in the rural area I grew up in. Knowing a good thing when I saw it, I said "absolutely," and Baby C and I headed out to my car. I pulled around to the front and the young man loaded my bags into my trunk for me. He actually did a better job of it than I could (usually because I'm trying to prevent my little Clutzy from stage diving out of the cart). What a nice way to end a shopping trip!
