Grocery Store Time

The grocery store is my second home; combine all my shopping trips and I spend two months each year shopping for groceries. I know the layout like the back of my hand, and the cashiers better than some of my relatives. So I care about the future of grocery stores. I care so much that when Smithsonian Magazine put out an article on their future, I flipped past pictures of cute puppies, celebrity prodigies,  a long-promised explanation of why people yawn, and a space exploration piece.

To Smithsonian, the grocery store of the future is high-tech, sustainable, and efficient. However, the sales are no better. So, I’ll wait around for someone else’s version of the future. For now, I’m reading about those cute puppies.
