Harlan’s, thank you.
You are my local store.
You carry a surprising variety of food.
hummus (well, you did once)
ravioli (maybe you could get the cheese kind?)
a fancy spinach, artichoke hearts, and parmesan dip (which I bought today and which expired yesterday).
and the staples like bread, cheese, milk, and frozen dinners.
except I don’t buy your frozen dinners (sorry).
Don’t let me forget the quick-sale items (like the solid whipping cream I bought for 50 cents–that’s butter!).
I don’t mean to come across as complaining,
because I think you’re really great.
Your clerks are nice and helpful
and you sell ripe bananas at reduced prices (hello, banana bread!)
It was really a pleasure to return to your aisles again
after a long absence.
I’m not really sure how you come up with your prices,
but today I noticed the better economy of buying the bigger box of wheat thins.
That made me feel smart.
I suspect you did that so I would feel smart.
So thanks for that.
I hope you stay in business for a long time.
