So Long, Scolari's

This afternoon after I got off work, Lisa and I went over to Scolari's grocery store for the last time. At 5 PM today, the store closed for good and the migration team moves in to spend the next few days converting the place into Raley's store 122.

We did not stick around until the bitter end, so we were not the Last Scolari's Customer. As we left, the sign trucks started to take down the first few letters of the old sign.

We hope that Raley's does as good a job serving the community as Scolari's did, and that we'll still be able to get most of the things we were getting at the older store. Raley's is a pretty good grocery store chain. Things could be much worse. Indeed, the store might have closed entirely, giving us the choice of Wal-Mart or driving to Reno for all of our groceries.
