    Really, so we should go back to the days when vegetables came wrapped in plastic, everything had to be rung up by hand, and spaghetti was something that came in a can? Thanks, but I’ll pass.

    @B: I believe he’s referring to the personal, friendly, bend-over-backward nature of the supermarket in the 60′s. He didn’t say “product evolution”, he said “supermarket evolution”

    Where does it say this: “be happiest if supermarket evolution had ceased around 1968 or so.”

    I am at the site and expected that on the front page…am I missing it?

        These days, the selection is light-years ahead of what we had in 1968. And fresher, too. In some stores, like Publix, the employees can’t wait to help you, either.

        What you don’t have, though, is a manager who you might have grown up with. Likely, it’s someone from out of town. And no, the grocery store won’t run you a tab for a month or two when you fall on hard times. You negotiate that stuff with VISA, or Titlemax, these days…
