The dressing rooms in BIG R are in the round, inside a small silo. It makes for an interesting experience.
So does shopping there in general, for a ‘citified’ person. When you come into the store you are greeted by the aroma and sound of fresh popping popcorn.
And they hand you a small bag of it… to eat, to enhance your shopping fun. MINE was gone in a heartbeat. YUM!
They have quite an interesting inventory of old fashioned foods and candy, as well. Two things my parents always had in the pantry, from back in the day… were Circus Peanuts, that orange marshmallow-y delight. (They were invented in the 1800’s and are considered one of the original PENNY candies.) And in lieu of potato chips or potato sticks, at BIG R… I found that classic country snack, my parents still adore… pork rinds. Their origin as a snack food dates way back too. Made me smile... thinking of my folk's... sweet and savory treats. So of course... I had to buy a bag of both, the peanuts and the rinds. Not diet food, I know... but hey, when good childhood memories beckon, you listen. Thank you BIG R for moving in. You made my day. You were not the department store I was expecting to settle into this space, but one I enjoyed visiting, nonetheless.
