The world's first grocers, Maum and Pôp, imagined a place where people could procure eats in a welcoming environment without fear of saber-toothed-tiger attack. Witness the modern-day realization of this vision with the personal touch of today's deal: for $20, you get $50 worth of groceries and more at Chevy Chase Supermarket near Bethesda. This Groupon is good toward anything in-store except for alcohol, cigarettes, and dates with employees.
This neighborhood market has been growing groceries from its blossoming shelf-branches for more than 50 years. Over the years, the store has changed locations, grown, and been asked, "Does Chevy Chase own this place?" by out-of-towners 6,030 times—but has always remained family owned and robot operated. Shoppers will find a deli and floral and meat departments within this small-scale, full-service grocery store. The pristine condition of the store is legendary among area neat freaks. The cleanliness extends to the shopping carts, which are treated with the PureCart system to kill 99% of germs, creating a sanitary stage for fruit squeezing or eating off cart handles.
Chevy Chase Supermarket carries all the common consumables along with many harder-to-find edible treasures. In the uproarious, labyrinthine aisles, you'll find locally produced goods and specialty products like beluga caviar. Produce starts at $.50 and goes up to $10 for organic and specialty fruits and vegetables. Fresh meat ($3–$30) encompasses anything from poultry to seafood to the world-famous whole filet mignon roast. Don't forget to stock up on the essentials that always seem to be disappearing, like fresh-baked breads and grains ($1–$8), a gallon of milk or other dairy ($1–$10), and a jar of Bubbie Jeanne's Brisket Magic Sauce ($3 with today's side deal).
