Babysitting at Grocery Store

Load Up the Cart: Phoenix Grocer Provides Babysitting

A trip to the grocery store with a tot in tow is never as quick a trip as it would be on your own. From the constant whining asking for a sugary cookie to the battle over sitting in the cart, a grocery excursion is often more hassle than it is worth.

I was recently lamenting about a disastrous shopping experience with a friend based in the Phoenix area when she told me about the novel idea they have there. Their local grocery store offers a babysitting service complete with toys, videos and indoor gym spaces to occupy the kids while mama fills her cart. Staffed with trained (and CPR-certified) babysitters, the play area allows my friend to get her shopping done and keeps the kids happy at the same time.

Would you seek out a grocery store that had child care services?
