The Slice

A grocery store by any other name

There are people of a certain age who move to the Inland Northwest from other parts of the country and refer to Rosauers or Albertson's or whatever by the name of the store where they shopped back where they used to live.

So I guess it stands to reason that some who move from here to someplace far away refer to going to Yoke's or Safeway when that's not the name of the new store at all.
