North Carolina has the Harris Teeter or, as we liked to call it, Hairless Peter.

In Pennsylvania where I lived for a while there is a chain called WaWa.

We have a Quickie Mart near where I live. An Indian man runs it too. That's probably as interesting as it gets as far as grocery stores go around here.

Hmmm, when I picture Grocery Stores, I envision larger corporate type of environments as opposed to your local convenience store. Here's how things shape up in my neck of the woods:

Publix
Winn Dixie
Albertson's

Bout it unless you want to count Target' and the Mega, Super, Multi Walmart's.

Food King is a local chain in central NC. I guess the name isn't so bad, except that these are the kind of places that your feet stick to the floor as you walk...

That reminds me of another one-- King Soopers in Colorado.

Anyone remember Food Lion? They went under primarily, I believe, to selling bad meat.

Perchik's avatar

@loupus they're still around down here

loupus's avatar

Wow, really? Do you know if it's the same chain that used to be in north Texas in the 90s? I remember them having a big food scare and all the stores I knew of closed.

Perchik's avatar

Probably the same chain. Food Lion
