We all want loyalty from our fellow humans, but it's never guaranteed and rarely shared. Brand loyalty is another story and not something I can really relate to. How could a person be so loyal to a company, business or brand that they're willing to put their own reputation on the line to promote it?

People love recommending businesses, products and services despite not having any incentive to do so. They'll say, "you gotta try it" or "you have to go there!" One of the things people seem to be the most passionate about are their grocery stores.

We see it all the time on the I-95 Morning Show, whenever the topic of groceries comes up, the phones light up and the text messages flood in. People recommend their favorite place and share the best savings you can get from that place.

I only added the Food Emporium because we love their jingle. I don't know what the shopping experience will be like yet but we're looking forward to finding out when they finish construction on the one coming to Brookfield. Listen to this fire jam of a jingle. This is the song of the summer for sure.

 

When you start to add it up there are a million different places in Greater Danbury that are selling us food so I intentionally left a bunch out. I always prefer Mom n' Pop businesses but the list gets a bit unmanageable when you start to include everyone.

P.S. I love grocery stores with all my heart. My uncle owns a grocery store in Brewster called Kobackers that we all consider to be the family business. Every Milano family member worked there at one time or another and many of them still do.

My first job was working as a cashier at Kobackers when I was 14 years old. My father, my sisters, my aunts, uncles and cousins, everyone had their turn there. Hell, my Dad misses working there so much he spends hours hanging out there each Sunday morning. He harasses my family while they try and get their respective jobs done.

There is an energy in a grocery store that never goes away. I guess a mandate for keeping things fresh will have the effect.
