By now, you know I am a big fan of Mariano's Lakeshore East...love. love. love that store! That said, it is very fun to check out other Mariano's stores as they crop up around Chicago. Mariano's Harwood Heights has a Todds BBQ, Mariano's West Loop has an Oyster Bar...they all have their own personality.
SO...I may, or may not have been listening to Kidz Bop as I cruised down Clark Street on my way to Mariano's South Loop opening. (OK, I was...it was in the car...and I like it...OK?)
BTW, if you have a Mariano's Rewards Card, buy 10 and the next one is free. Yum, yum, yummy!
I really enjoyed Mariano's South Loop. It's a lovely shopping atmosphere, it has lots of light, there are so many prepared items that you can grab and go...but there is also full grocery goods where you can pick up everything on your shopping list. I highly recommend checking it out. The South Loop is very lucky to have this gem in the neighborhood!
Oh, if all this goodness wasn't enough, check out the Mariano's West Loop opera flash mob! THAT is a fun grocery store!
For all things Mariano's, be sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter, and check out more pictures on my Google+ gallery! Have you been to a Mariano's yet? What do you love about Mariano's?
