The biggest problem with supermarket shopping is that most supermarkets have no shortage of food, which means they’re often the first thing people come across when they walk into a store.
But when it comes to buying, a simple Google search can give you a much better idea of what’s out there than you might be aware of.
“The first thing you’ll see on Google is the top 10 most popular grocery stores,” said Sam Kastigar, the CEO of online retailer Best Buy.
“I’ve never seen a top 10 list of all the grocery stores in the world before.”
Kastigars shop at the Walmart store on the way to the supermarket.
“They’re always a little bit of a drawcard,” he said.
“But you know, if you’re on your way to a store, you’re probably not going to see anything that’s new or anything that you haven’t seen before.”
He said he likes to think of himself as a casual shopper, but if you’ve been to a few different grocery stores, you can spot them pretty easily.
“They’re just so much more diverse and varied than the grocery store,” Kastigs said.
“And they have so many different flavors.”
The grocery store, he said, is “like a little community.
People are just trying to find a new way to get what they need.”
Kestigar said he also has a lot of fun shopping with his family.
“My daughter and I go to the grocery and we like to pick the best items,” he explained.
“And we go shopping with our kids.”
The fact that so many grocery stores have different kinds of produce and meats, like fresh meat, cheeses, and eggs, helps explain why Kastige’s son, Kael, is such a fan of a supermarket he bought a few years ago.
“It’s just fun.
It’s just really exciting,” Kael Kastigan said.
For many people, the biggest misconception about grocery shopping is the lack of options.
“There’s not that many options,” said Kastiga.
“There’s a lot going on and you have to sort of find the perfect thing, and then you just keep trying to get it.”
That’s why Kestigars advice for shoppers is to be patient and shop around, even if it takes time.
“We want to give people as much time as possible, but just be patient,” he advised.
“You’ll get there eventually.”
