I miss Provo
Posted by Brooke-Jean Newman
There is honestly no logical reason for me to miss Provo especially when I think about the things that I miss most. It's not anything a normal person would expect to miss.
I miss my normal grocery store - Macey's. I swear Macey's is a ton cheaper than Smith's, but living in Downtown Salt Lake doesn't give you many shopping options. We can go to Smith's or drive to Centerville or Sandy for other options.
I also miss having two malls within a five minute drive. Now, we do have the Gateway but the Gateway is for people who have a lot more money to spend than we do. Our next closest mall option is in Sandy. Our current closest Target location is either Centerville or somewhere around Sandy/West Jordan. Our closest Bed, Bath, and Beyond is in Sugar House.
We have lots of little shops around but nothing you go to when you are on a massive shopping trip with a long list of things to get.
Did I mention the closest, decent Wal-Mart is clear over on 5400 S. and redwood road. Yes, I know there is one 13th south but that one doesn't even have a car center.
Anyway, I always thought I'd miss Provo a little bit once I left, I just never realized it would be because I started thinking about how awesome my old grocery store was - and it really was awesome!
