In a not-so-nice twist of fate, my local PakNSave, purveryor of cheap groceries for the last 25 years, closed on the same day as my last day of work. Wahhh!! I knew it was coming eventually - Safeway owns PakNSave and was planning to close it down, remodel and then reopen as a regular Safeway. The only problem is that the regular Safeway is a lot more expensive than PakNSave, even though they sell the same stuff. Sigh. I'll just have to make do with Trader Joe's and Costco.
