When you get there, don’t forget the snacks, the fresh fruit, the meatballs, the ice cream or the hot sauce, all of it with a touch of magic from the kitchen.
“It feels really good,” said Julie Karpinski, a 27-year-old graphic designer in the East Bay who works in the bakery business.
“When I go home, I want to be able to come back and feel good.
It’s like a family.
I don’t know what else I could do.”
You might feel more connected to the store, said Karpinsky, who is originally from Canada.
“I feel like I’m in my own space.”
She said that the grocery stores she frequents in San Francisco and New York have become so similar, that she doesn’t even feel that different anymore.
And she’s sure that there’s a whole lot more magic in a grocery store than she’s experienced before.
“The food, the people, the atmosphere are what really brings me back,” Karpinkins said.
