WCVB – Grocery shopping could become less boring in town. Representatives of Whole Foods rolled out a “shop while you drink” concept for its Sudbury store in the Meadow Walk development during a recent selectmen’s meeting.
The store hopes to have the coffee bar area serve beer and wine at certain hours. While there is seating there, the plan would allow customers to enjoy their beverages while shopping throughout the store as well, the MetroWest Daily News reported.
I absolutely *despise* grocery shopping. I will avoid it at all possible costs, which is probably why Grubhub gets more money from me than my 401K. I’ve legitimately product mapped ideas for apps to help you get in and out of the grocery store as quick as possible, but maybe thats just me. Maybe its a guy thing I don’t know, but if I can avoid the grocery store I do….until now.
Drinking makes everything better. To quote the legend that was Frank Sinatra,“I feel sorry for people that don’t drink because when they wake up in the morning, that is the best they’re going to feel all day.” A backyard and a grill is great, but add a few Bud Heavys and you got yourself a cookout. Golfing is fun, but its difficult and frustrating as shit at times. I’ve seen guys from this very blog smash their cell phone off a bench after a bad hole. Add in a case of cold ones? Best way to spend a Saturday afternoon regardless of how many balls you lose in the woods.
Now add drinking to grocery shopping? Shit I might call up the boys and tell em to meet me down at Whole Foods so we can cross something off the honey do list. Just mildly buzzed while shopping for Cocoa Pebbles, maybe sip some whiskey while browsing the different cuts of steak they have out. That just sounds delightful. Might have to start taking Ubers home from the grocery store though which presents a completely different budgeting conundrum. Come to think of it, this may be Amazon/Whole Foods’ play to take over not only the grocery store game, but the ride share game too. Goddamnit Bezos you brilliant bastard.
