Grocery shopping in the 34/39 area

One of the topics that came up at the 34/39 dinner fellowship a few weeks ago was grocery shopping! The grocery store of choice seems to be in the Giant in Ravenwood Shopping Center:

Giant at RAVENWOOD Shopping Center
8100 Loch Raven Boulevard
Baltimore, MD 21286
Tel: 703-354-5081

Memorial Day sales at this location continue until Thursday, May 31. Here is the circular with a listing of all of the special sales for the week, though some of the sales end today. I know that some of us have taken advantage of the Breyer's Ice Cream sale ... 1/2 gallons for $1.99!

Giant Special Sales at Loch Raven & Taylor

Happy shopping!

Thank you to everyone who came to the 34/39 Dinner Fellowship! We had a wonderful response. We also thank you for your comments so that the next fellowship will be even better! Thanks to Sis.
