Some things never change and that’s a good thing!

Recently, I was visiting family and friends in Texas and Oklahoma.  One supermarket in Wichita Falls continues to do things the “old fashioned” way, and I hope it never changes.

United Supermarket still insists on taking the groceries to the vehicle.  It was great to see how these young people hurry back to the store to find the next delivery and most of them had a smile on their faces.  This type of job isn’t glamorous and the weather constantly changes as was evident the day I was at the store.

I only went in to purchase a few items so there was no need to have them deliver my items to the car, but I left there pleased to see that United continues to do the small things that make people come back!

  1. Ah, nostalgia runs deep. What’s missing in the vision you create is what’s there–work. In a day when our nation is crying for jobs and the unemployment rate is on the rise, simple little things like (what we used to call) “bag boys” does a couple of things: (1) provides work for some who would otherwise be unemployed, and (2) teaches a positive work ethic so that when these young people complete educations and enter competitive job markets, they will have the experience to do the job.

    Thanks for the memories, Joe. And for the beautiful picture too.

    Feels good to get good customer service! Old School! So in Ukraine do the state stores still make you stand in two lines?

  3. @Benji, thanks for stopping by. I enjoy reflecting from time to time.
    @Doug, there aren’t many “state stores” and can’t remember the last time I saw one.
