Love is everywhere in a Kroger. Parents and kids, boyfriends and girlfriends, husbands and wives, shopping for the things they need. Relationships are about needs. When you go to the grocery store, you’re there to support the people you love. Amidst constant change in the world—even as the physical store itself changes—Kroger remains what it is: a comfort zone. Familiar. You might be frustrated, or sad, or full of joy. You might be alone or followed by a gaggle of kids, but Kroger always keeps an even keel. Visiting these stores and talking to people made me realize that the story I’m telling is way more than “corporate giant supports local arts.” It’s about our humanity. It’s about memory. It’s about the fact that grocery stores don’t just sell food, they provide nourishment.
