Those Darlins got you covered. (I’m a little obsessed.)

Have a listen—>Keep My Skillet Good & Greasy, Those Darlins

“I cannot count the good people I know who to my mind would be even better if they bent their spirits to the study of their own hungers.”

M.F.K. Fisher

1937. A Memphis grocer and innovator named Clarence Saunders introduces a revolutionary new concept in shopping for food. This marks history’s first automatic grocery store.

Yes, a system of codes and ticker tape meant that the you didn’t have to schlep around your own groceries.

You viewed your items through windows and inserted tape for coding.

Out spits your final code and your order is processed, as you wait in a lovely holding room.

I laughed to myself, thinking about a system like this in Chicago. Just last week at the Strack, the woman behind me had smoke coming out of her ears because I used a coupon for Athenos yogurt.

Nice try Clarence.

What a Keedoozle.
