I loved Ukrops because the atmosphere was great, and I felt like I was giving my money to a good family run company, the store brand cheddar cheese was better than any of the other store brands in Roanoke, and they've never opened on Sundays. How many stores still observe the sabbath day? Not many. They were also competative price wise, especially their weekly specials. I once stocked up on my canned vegetable food storage for 25 cents a can.
Avery ADORED Ukrops! Who knows why? Obviously not for the same reasons I did, but she really did! It was always an exciting moment when she spotted Ukrops from the van window and realised that we were going to UKROPS! While we shopped she loved running around the store saying things like "Ukrops! My crops! Your crops??" and pointing out all the signs with U's on them. "U for Ukrops and Umbrella!" She loved getting a little snack from the salad bar and LOVED going up in the elevator to the dining area upstairs to eat it!
Goodbye Ukrops! We will miss you! Especially Avery...
