The Possessive Store

One thing that I find common to people in Chicago is something I find really charming: we make every store name a possessive noun. For instance, you’re not going to “Jewel”. You’re going to “Jewel’s”.

I really haven’t experienced this much elsewhere (outside of the upper midwest, anyway) and it’s definitely something that garnered a few quizzical stares when we lived in Denver. “You’re going to Safeway’s?”

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
