  • Goodbye Ghetto Dillons

    We hardly knew thee...

    The improvements sound nice, but how will life in Lawrence be without Ghetto Dillons?

    BLOW. IT. UP.

    Use the cleansing power of fire.

      That place still exists? Wow

      I remember that place was outdated in the 80's

        As long as they keep packing it with the same inferior products, it'll always be ghetto.

          That Dillons wouldn't be bad except for all the fat, homo-tard, negro-midgets that frequent the place.

            That's the closest grocery store to where I live. I shop there all the time, but moreso for the people watching than the products. I always leave that store feeling much, much better about myself.

              True tale of East Lawrence, c. 1994. My friend on East 19th discovered how easy it was to shoplift at the Mass St. Dillon's. Exactly like in Animal House, he'd stuff his pants full of steaks and just brazenly walk out. He did that for years. Anything he wanted that would fit in his jeans or jacket.

              They finally installed anti-theft devices in the late 1990s. He must've wiped out tens of thousands of dollars of merchandise just on his own.

                If I didn't shoplift the grocery stores in the 70's, I would have starved to death.

                  Going into a Dillons after 10pm is an experience.

                    I always called it the "barefoot Dillons".

                      Ghetto Dillons used to be my store of choice until we moved out to 6th. Now we go to working-middle-class Dillons.

                      Is the one out on West 6th a nicer Dillons? Maybe a JoCo Dillons?

                        It's nicer in a Manhattan vs. Columbia sort of way.

                          Reminds me of when I cashiered at Food4Less in the late 90's. We called it Food4Free.
