We all recognize that Richmond is becoming a Foodie Favorite and gaining recognition throughout the east. But I’ve also become aware of Richmond increased notariety as the destination for grocery chains. To name a few – Food Lion, Krogers, Martins, Aldis, Lidl and Publix. Odd but true …..
Yelp even lists the best 30 grocery stores in Richmond! (https://www.yellowpages.com/richmond-va/grocery-stores)
With the proliferation of stores we all have our favorites and in most cases, it is our neighborhood market. I for one was devastated when I LOST Ukrops at John Rolfe Parkway. I took it personally – it was my store!! As it transitioned to Martins, I never felt at home and always viewed it as an inferior replacement. For good or bad, Martins closed many many months ago and I have daily watched the activity behind the fence as a mother transition is on the horizon. It has taken forever!!!! But last week the lime green sign was shining brightly at dusk – PUBLIX !!! Only a few more days until I have my neighborhood store!
