Blog: Supermarkets CAN bring meaning to life

Catherine Sleep | 1 March 2004

I remember in Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City one of the heroines falls in lust over a packet of frozen peas in her local supermarket. Fast forward a couple of decades and supermarkets were flirting with the idea of ‘singles nights’ to encourage the romantically inclined to shop for groceries while they browsed the aisles for something more meaningful.

Seems that for one couple at least, the supermarket really did come up trumps. To celebrate their wedding, Jill Piggott and Pete Freeman went right back to the ASDA store where they met, and walked up a rather unconventional aisle as they became husband and wife.

Wedding with a difference
