Perhaps I was spoiled by having orignally shopped at the WFs on North Ave. but the couple of times I've shopped at the one on Ashland, it just feels funny.
The aisles are all wrong, too short, strange order? Have any other hounds experienced this? I will say, however, that the multi-pierced twenty-somethings that stock and cashier and work the fish and deli counters are about the nicest people I've ever met working in a "supermarket" environment.
Since I'm in Ravenswood my choices aren't too limited. Jewel, if nec., Shop and Save if craving some neighborhood and on-the-cheap and a few Mexican grocery stores, but these are becoming endangered by the gentrification of the area. I'm close to the Middle Eastern store on Foster and Clark - a hop skip and a bus ride.
So it's a multi-question. Where do you shop and why?
