One of the best things about the holidays are the movies.


I know you might be thinking where are they going with this, the title says groceries. Just hang on, we are getting there.


In the Holiday comedy, Christmas with the Kranks, we see Jamie Lee Curtis hilariously racing towards a tin of Hickory Honey Ham in the supermarket with another shopper in toe trying to secure the last ham on the shelf. Jamie Lee Curtis’s character was unsuccessful in her supermarket rally pursuit but eventually buys another ham from another shopper only to have the bag tear in the parking lot and the ham roll onto the road, got ran over by a trailer and eventually splattered to pieces.


This scene, though an extravagant depiction of holiday supermarket shopping gone wrong, speaks to the stress, anxiety and mishaps that can happen when shopping during the season.


In Jamaica, our supermarkets get quite busy with last minute shoppers. At CoolMarket, we recommend planning ahead, however, we do understand that situations beyond your control make last-minute shopping inevitable.
