For those of you who live here and have never shopped at The Purity, shame on you. You need try it once, you really do.
When you walk into the store, head to the right. Lift your gaze. You are now officially welcomed to The Purity.
The welcome sign happens to be above my favorite section of the store—the place where the Cyrus O’Leary’s cream pies are displayed. Buy one. Do not read the nutrition label. Eat it. Go bonkers with delight.
Also toward the back of the store is The Beer Corner! I don’t know of any other store that has such a special place to gather between 8-8:15am with those who ran out of supplies overnight and again between the hours of 4-6:00pm with those who need to refresh their inventory.
Think all they have is chocolate cream pies, beer and Taaka Vodka? Think again. They also have ice!
You can even buy a cup of coffee. I must confess I’ve never tried it, but it’s at The Purity so it has to be good.
For extra fun, venture to The Purity after dark. It’s sometimes my favorite time to shop because it’s so mysteriously beautiful and I can sneak in and buy a chocolate cream pie while wearing my pajamas.
The Purity is open until 8:00 every night; 7:00 on Sunday.
Go now. Buy something yummy. I guarantee it’ll make you happy.
The only thing you forgot to mention is that The Purity also has Crazy Bugs, my favorite boxed macaroni and cheese. Even Harvest doesn’t have Crazy Bugs!!
Thank you so much for this observation alert reader Laine!
Another really awesome feature of Purity is the CLASSICAL MUSIC they play (except during the Christmas season when they revert to more conventional background muzak). There’s nothing quite as inspiring as choosing one’s carrots to the likes of Mozart. 🙂
Ah yes, the music–the wonderful music.
