Pitching Publix

For this week’s Food Fight, I chose to pitch Publix because most of the food I feature during our weekly food fights can be found with one trip to Publix.

 

I love Publix.

 

It’s not just your run-of-the-mill supermarket.  It’s an experience.  After all, it’s “where shopping is a pleasure” and that’s no joke or some silly slogan Publix has been boasting for years.

 

The sales associates always happily offer assistance well before I  get that deer lost in headlights look.

 

The store managers apologize when items are not in stock.

 

Publix takes competitor‘s coupons and they stack coupons.  It’s beautiful frugal thing.

 

Cashiers greet me with smiles and they remember my children’s names.

 

Baggers cheerfully pack my groceries AND help me with my packages to my car.

 

And the bakery is simply the bomb.

 

While vacationing in North Carolina, I visited Ingles which would seriously give Publix a run for its money if they ever opened a location here.  Shopping at Ingles was quite a pleasurable experience, but it was no Publix.  Although the Ingles bakery was pretty darn close! I still dream about those delicious Ingles pistachio muffins. But I digress…

 

The best thing about Publix is that there is one in nearly every neighborhood, which is my criteria for moving to any new neighborhood: There has to be a Publix within ten minutes of my house.

 

Now you know the real reason as to why I could never move to the UK or North Carolina.

 

Oh and I would miss my family terribly too.
