Before the Shopping Cart” – This is about the history of supermarkets with a focus on Publix (of course). I take the audience from the general store/mercantile stores of the late 1800s, to the first food stores, then the supermarket. I share about which company was the first to have self-service markets, who invented the shopping cart, and how Publix impacted the food industry along the way. The Pioneer Museum & Village will open the general store for folks to walk through prior to the presentation.
