That reminds me of the phrase my mother used to use for grocery shopping:
No one I know now uses this phrase.
Anyone heard it?
In my family, we say "grocery-shopping" or just use "going to the grocery
store" instead of "going shopping."
"Food-shopping" is the only phrase that we use in our family, and we do
it at the 'food-store'. 'Grocery' (When I ever do say it, it's
pronounced [gro-shur-ee]) sounds like something that my gramma would
say. Very outdated to me.
