Visitor Tips and News About Big John - Grocery Clerk
This is an actual working grocery store so if you go on a Friday like we did, be prepared for the tiny parking lot to be crowded. People drive like lunatics around there too. Go early in the morning or whenever the store is closed.[Kristen, 09/08/2015]
