Maxx foods on MacArthur Boulevard might be best described as the Big Lots! of food. Picture that in your mind, for a moment. The image should speak volumes. Given that he was entering the Big Lots! of food (just as I was leaving), this guy had a surprising amount of spring in his step. Whenever I walk into this place I feel a little depressed. Maybe I am setting my expectations too high. If I was simply shopping for Funyuns and Kool-Aid, I’d probably be perfectly satisfied.
