So, the coolest thing to happen to Little Rock is the addition of the new Kroger Marketplace store – or as I like to call it, Fancy Kroger. I’ve never heard of Fancy Kroger before moving here, but Chad took me there for the first time today, and it was seriously a crazy experience.
Imagine a Kroger, a tiny part of a Whole Foods, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Wal-Mart, coffee shop, Home Goods and a jewelery store all under one roof – that is what the Fancy Kroger is. We started with the grocery store/coffee shop/Whole Foods section (they had the nice organic stuff and a bulk foods department), then made our way to the Wal-Mart-ish part, the tot he Home Goods/Bed, Bath & Beyond part, and finally to the jewelery store (weird, right?!). Like, it was for real diamonds and stuff from a legit nationwide jeweler. Insane. Why do you need all of these things, Fancy Kroger? You’re a bit overwhelming.
I tried to convince Chad that we should take pictures at the Fancy Kroger, but alas, he was not game. Probably for the best that we not look like a bunch of crazies…even though we kind of are :)
Also at Fancy Kroger – Chad was wearing an OU shirt and I was wearing a Texas shirt, prompting 5 different people to say something along the lines of “How in the world do you guys even like each other?” LOL. Too funny!
