We all find out sooner or later!

Remember when supermarkets weren't that widely spaced and you could get whatever you needed without confusion? I miss the way they were, I find it difficult to go to Kroger's all the time.

This supermarket seen in the film apparently was a popular one around the LA area though I guess it faded to history anyway.

Johnny seemed to really enjoy hanging out at the supermarket. Plus the narrator is great on this.

I would too if I had dreams of being a bagger! That almost happened!

Too bad the supermarket I loved got sold out by a sleazy Republican who had a thing for posing as a Nazi in a war reenactment that took in some heat (I see he's into making movies for SyFy now). We still remember!

I suppose the lesson in the end is never let your son takeover the family business if you can help it!
