Fred Meyer Supermarket Boise - 300th Post :)

My profuse apologies for being away from blogging for the past few weeks. My daughter Bhavana & grand daughter Mira were in India for two weeks and I was so fully involved with them ( particularly with Mira ! ) that I had neither the time nor the inclination to blog. 
I am enclosing pictures clicked at Fred Meyer Supermarket, during my visit to Boise in October 2012. It is an amazing place which is very well stocked with a wide variety of fruits, vegetables & food stuff, has large wide aisles for maneuvering carts/trolleys and automatic self weighing/billing & payment facility with a single supervisor overseeing half a dozen such self counters. Incidentally this happens to be my 300th post.

    glad you got to spend time with your daughter and granddaughter.

    and we take so much for granted in the US - like all this selection and fresh produce available...

  2. This type of supermarket is very common in Hawaii, but prices of goods vary significantly from store to store. Hubby likes to comparison shop, but I don't have the patience for it.

    Too bad your granddaughter did not witness Diwali. She would have been awed by the lights.

    1. In fact Mira did come for Diwali in the year 2011. And she had a fabulous time with the myriad lights and dazzling fire works.

  5. Happy 300th!
    We have a Fred Meyer's here in Corvallis; it's a department/grocery store unique to the Northwest. We just bought a tv set there. Pretty fun.
    I'm glad that you had a wonderful visit with your grand daughter. Does she speak some Hindustani? (Gosh, I might have asked about the wrong language.)

  14. Hope you had great time with your daughter and grand daughter but two weeks is really a short span of time to enjoy. :( Even I went for three weeks, so I know how much of a hurry you are in.

    Beautiful shots and congrats on the 300th post. It is a rare feat. :)
