Let’s go Krogering

kroger.jpgDon’t tell anyone, but, sometimes I think I can control things with my mind.

The other day? I was passing by Kroger in Belle Meade and I thought to myself, “You know, the square Kroger box signs are really retro-ish, I really like them, but, I ‘m surprised they’re still around. It’ll be no time at all before we can say, ‘remember when the Kroger signs looked like that?'”

Today, I passed by the Belle Meade Kroger again, just in time to see them taking down said cubicular (shut up, it is too a word) sign and replacing it with something more modern and saying something about “Fresh Fare”, which I think means it has more cheese and bread and stuff. I tried to take an actual photo of it for you from the car, but, it was pouring the rains, I was driving, and, all I ended up with was a shot of some surprised sign workers and part of the old sign. Just work with me and use your imgaination, then. Anyway, looks like they’re gearing up for the competition from Harris Teeter that will be squatting in the Belle Meade Theater in the new Belle Meade Town Center.

It has also been renamed “The Kroger at Belle Meade”, because, anyone knows when you add a “The” and an “at”, everything is fancier. Let’s try it: “The Metroblogging Blog at Nashville”. Sounds like a step above the other cities, no?

    All that fixin’ up and they’ve stopped stocking Gardenburgers, though. But they do now carry my favorite soy milk.

    I didn’t know there was going to be a Harris Teeter at the theater…I guess I should read my West Meade News or whatever that thing is they throw out by my mailbox every week.

    Hey, gimme a break–that was before I’d even heard of this site! I read it every day now, though. I promise.

    Lol @ Amanda.

    Busymom, I wonder if that trick works on people too?

    The Jackson at Nashville

    Nah, sounds more like a gated subdivision.

    Lesley, I like you. You seem very good humored. In fact I asked Chris the other day if we had ever met you at any blogger functions and he said he didn’t think so. You should come next time, I think you’d fit in very well.

    I was always a little wary of those old Kroger signs. They seemed more than a little top heavy and my childhood imagination coupled with a steady diet of movies like “Smokey & The Bandit” made it very easy to imagine one of those signs falling over an smashing my dad’s Plymouth Horizon to bits.
