The Most Ridiculous Grocery Store Photos (That Remind Us of What Life Used to Be Like)

Once upon a time, the grocery store was our haven. We could linger, we could sample, we could laugh at the silly signs made by clever employees. Now, thanks to coronavirus, our haven has become a war zone. If we dare to enter through its doors, we go cloaked in latex gloves and face masks, aiming to buy as much as we can in as little time possible. Then we come home and have to sanitize everything like it’s coated in a deadly virus (which it might be). Someday, we hope our food meccas (and the rest of society) return to normal. Until then, let’s reminisce about simpler times when grocery stores were sources of pleasure and amusement. These are the most ridiculous grocery store photos on the internet today.
