A grocery store is a store that retails food. A grocer, the owner of a grocery store, stocks different kinds of foods from assorted places and cultures, and sells these "groceries" to customers. Large grocery stores that stock products other than food, such as clothing or household items, are called supermarkets. Small grocery stores that mainly sell fruits and vegetables are known as produce markets (U.S.) or greengrocers (Britain), and small grocery stores that predominantly sell snack foods and sandwiches are known as convenience stores or delicatessens.
Famous quotes related to grocery store:
“We all have bad days, of course, a secret that only makes us feel more guilty. But once my friends and I started telling the truth about how far we deviated from perfection, we couldnt stop. . . . One mother admitted leaving the grocery store without her kidsI just forgot them. The manager found them in the frozen foods aisle, eating Eskimo Pies.”
—Mary Kay Blakely (20th century)
“Slim inquirer, while the old fathers sleep
you are reworking their soil, you have
a grocery store there down under the earth....”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
