I really have no idea how old this Cahokia Schnucks sign actually is (the store itself appears to be an old Kroger, so old enough, I suppose), but it feels retro to me, maybe because it’s a cube. I also think the Schnucks soldier probably has something to do with it…while you see him on their trucks and in their advertising, he doesn’t appear on store signs too often!
This morning I stopped at Schnucks to pick up a few things for Christmas. I was not expecting to run into Anna from Frozen while I was there. Of course I had to run back home and get Chickadee, so she could meet her, too. I loved seeing her face light up when we found her in the store! Chickadee was especially tickled when Anna told her that when she got home, she had to give Sven a bath, or he’d ruin their Christmas party!
Chickadee acquired a new friend at Schnucks today:
For the last few weeks (maybe even months…time flies by too fast!), Schnucks has had these cute little palm trees and inflatable monkeys on display in the produce department near the bananas and other tropical fruit. Chickadee said “hi” to them every week, because she thought they were so cute. Today, as we were walking past the deli, a Schnucks employee happened to be walking by with one of the monkeys, and as she always does, Chickadee said hello to it. That was the only prompting he needed, and he immediately bent down and placed the monkey in Chickadee’s arms and said “He’s all yours!” It totally made her day, and now she has a new friend!
