I love to shop and one of my favorite places to shop is at the S&M Market in Greensboro, NC. Actually, to be honest, I’ve never set foot in the place but I’ve admired it from the street’s shoulder a number of times.

It’s hard to see in the picture, but there is a chicken-wire fence that is the store’s first defense while it’s closed. The second defense? Some rather large German Shepherds that you can see if you really look at the picture.

What’s the story on this place? I’m not really sure, but I came across some interesting news about the S & M Market and some grenades…

I’d say that grenades make for some rather hardcore S & M, but what do I know? One thing I do know is that packs of cigarettes used to never be this expensive in N.C.

In Greensboro, NC you’ll find the Super G Market located in FantaCity – a magical shopping center located at 4927 W. Market St. The Super G Market has a lot of strange products (strange to silly Americans like myself) shipped over from Japan, China and even Mexico!

Here is a sampling of the delight you’ll find at the Super G Market…

The black barley tea energy drink from Japan that makes you stand up out of your cube and say, "Hello Boss!"

If you get bored with all the strange groceries at the Super G, then you can always venture to the back of the store where they’ve recently opened the Flea Market. When I was there, the flea market was fairly empty but I did buy a few records – George Carlin, The Cars, Heart, and the soundtrack for The Electric Horseman.

The shirt said "Army Girl" and I'm not sure what the hair said, but she sold me my records.

Great copy is the key to strong sales.

If you’re in the area, the Super G Market is worth dropping in on. There’s a bit of a fishy smell in the place that reminds me of the 6th grade when we dissected squid. Don’t let that shy you away.

I just have this craving for a pickled cucumber.
