...ASAT grocery store death tournament, round 3

1. Barboursville Kroger vs 5. South Point WalMart

The lack of a sales tax on food in Ohio has helped the SP WM get this far in the tournament, but, alas, cannot get it past the #1 seed. Bvillle's Kroger cannot be denied of its ticket to the finals; the sushi bar, the gourmet cheeses, sale prices, and the double coupons just will not let that happen.

10. Julian's vs 3. Rt. 60 WalMart

Yet another upset for the tiny mom 'n pop shop. This store, in addition to being the cornerstone of Huntington's South Side and Fairfield West neighborhoods, is truly the last of a dying breed. The Rt. 60 WalMart is ok, but they refuse to be annexed by the city and they ship their profits back to Arkansas. Meanwhile, Julian's continues to do more than it's fair share to keep the culture and economy of Huntington sputtering along (that, and the homemade sausages and hummus are to die for).

I'm sensing a big win for Julian's could be just around the corner.

BTW, if you want me to take the Inbred Jed link down I will. I posted a longer comment about it on mine. No sense in further mucking up your comments section.

I still mourn the fact that Food Fair went downhill. You ever shop their plants and bushes in the spring? Far superior to most grocer's stuff.
