As the years go on, things in our life begin to change right before our very eyes. It’s not until several years later we release how different it is now versus then. The same thing can be said for grocery stores! Kids these days may not relate, but a lot of us find certain aspects of grocery stores to be few and far between nowadays.

Supermarkets these days have become so commercial that they’ve lost the standards they once held way back when. Do you remember these things about grocery stores back in the day? We sure do miss them!
