A new grocery store just opened up close to my home, so I went to visit. Everything was very new and orderly. Although most grocery stores in American are usually very clean, this one was even more so because of how new it was.
At a lot of grocery stores now is the “Redbox” where you can rent newly released DVDs and Blu-Rays for $1! It is very convenient and it is slowly putting the movie rental companies out of business.
很多杂货店现在有 “Redbox”了。付一块钱就能看刚出的DVD 和Blu-Ray。 因为这个很方便，所以很多租借DVD电影的公司就慢慢的倒闭了。
So many fruits and vegetables!
Many grocery stores also have a flower section.
You put all the things you want into a box and you pay for how much the box weighs.
Pre-made Mexican food.
At this grocery, you can buy food the chefs make and eat upstairs. Get lunch and your shopping done in one place!
Fresh seafood! Crab and lobster claws are often sold individually without the body.
Most grocery stores have an Asian section because Americans love Asian food. However, if you want more authentic ingredients, you should go to a Chinese supermarket.
A lot of choices for soda drinks. I heard that in many countries in Asia, Dr. Pepper is not sold there. Is this true? It’s delicious.
有很多饮料可供选择。 我听说在亚洲不卖Dr.Pepper. 真的么？它的味道不错嘛.
There are also many aisles of frozen foods that you just have to microwave and eat. Many people are either too busy to cook or too lazy to.
At more upscale grocery stores, often there are people handing out samples of food in hopes that you will buy some after you try it.
Americans love drinking milk and eating cheese. There’s so many different kinds. The wall in the back is full of cheese as well. The round blocks are also cheese.
Many choices of milk (1%, 2%, Skim and Whole milk).
牛奶有很多种 (1%, 2%, 脱脂和全脂牛奶）。
A wall full of different flavors of yogurt.
You can always find lots of fitness magazines. Yet Americans are still the fattest in the world…
Most grocery stores also have their own pharmacy.
Blocks of expensive soap
A aisle of pet food.
There are lots of choices, but everything is so neat.
All of those are expensive juices that are supposed to be nutritional.
My favorite part of the store
Freshly made sushi
The wine section.
I didn’t know they made miniature wine.
Wine in a box is popular with the college kids because of how cheap it is.
A lot of different types of beer. There are also a lot of beer imported from all over the world. From Asia, they have TsingDao, Asahi and Sapporo.
My shopping cart at the end of the trip
If you don’t have too many items, you can self-checkout to save time.
Otherwise you’ll have to stand in line.
You can buy lottery tickets from there. The green machine collects your change and gives you cash. But it also takes a small percent of the coins you put in.
