While the new Wild Oats lifestyle boutique that is celebrating its grand opening today isn’t in my mother’s Stop & Shop store, it is in one just a few more miles from her house.
The conversation below took place this morning:
“Mom, I need you to be a stringer, to do some research for me.”
“Research! On what,” she asked?
“The new Wild Oats, in the Stop & Shop.”
“I read about it yesterday.”
“So I need you to go there, pretend you’re stupid and ask questions about supplements to see if they’re up to doing this thing right.”
“Let me get a pen,” she replied.
She is heading there this weekend. Coming soon a report from NBN’s very own spy, my mother, the woman who raised me right and fed me good food way before people knew better.
