To be missed
Albertsons was not where we bought certain items, but it was important for some things: light-bulb selection, stationery selection, Wiffle balls, a certain kind of broiler pan, a great deal on real maple syrup, certain house-brand sundries, a brand of canned tomato juice better than Campbell's, housewares, sewing notions, party supplies, somebody in produce who cared about zucchini, an important ingredient in our house blend of coffee beans, items of the sort long squeezed from the H-E-B shelves for those who bake, and various other items not stocked by its rivals. The employees have always been helpful and pleasant. We'll keep shopping there for those things so long as they're on the shelves and the store's open. But there are quests to begin.
