1. Last Word: Kroger Disses Clarence Saunders, Mud Island Plans and The Australians
- Tuesday, January 26, 2016
What is old has become new again. And judging by your reaction to Andy Meek’s story on the Kroger plans for online ordering of groceries, what is old has gone viral as well.
Here are the basics:
You order from a list of items and Kroger fills the order and has it waiting for you to pick up.
When you think about the idea of supermarkets, which originated here in Memphis with Piggly Wiggly, it’s enough to make the Piggly Wiggly founder himself, Clarence Saunders, spin in his grave.
Before he came up with the idea of taking store shelves from behind the counter and putting them out there for you to get your own stuff from them, you would tell your grocer what you wanted and he would write it down on a paper bag and get it for you, wrap it up and present it to you.
Saunders changed all of that as you know if you’ve seen the Pink Palace’s child-sized replica of a Piggly Wiggly store from the start of the 20th century.
A century later, no paper bags and you can still walk among the shelves if you wish.
Perhaps this isn’t that extreme. Maybe this is simply a swing of the pendulum, back toward the middle ground.
Saunders tried to push it even further with his Keedoozle stores that followed Piggly Wiggly. In those stores, the items were lined up in what amounted to vending machines with shoppers releasing an item from the vertical row with a key.
Here Saunders went too far. He mashed the bread.

- Saturday, April 20, 2013

6. A Higher Order of Sausage
- Friday, March 01, 2013
GOD’S SAUSAGE. (When you see this column, it’s the 40 Days of Waffle Shop again, so strike while the iron is hot.)
“You might just be a copywriter,” Brick Muller said, staring down at the piece of paper I’d just handed him. On it was an ad idea I’d just pounded out on the 1948 Royal typewriter he was paying me to use as a copywriter. The fact that this was his first recognition that I might be one was gratifying since I’d already been there for nine months.

10. Rossville's Growth Depends on Its People
- Wednesday, November 07, 2007
The Town of Rossville doesn't garner big headlines because it doesn't draw big names to town like some of its Fayette County peers routinely do.
Without the ubiquitous Wal-Mart or Starbucks, or even a major grocery store chain to its credit, the quiet community hasn't been in the public eye like nearby Oakland, a hotbed of Fayette growth with high-profile and high-dollar developments up and down U.S. 64.
