Dear Friends,

Kermit the Frog, one of my favorite people in the world, always says, “It’s not easy to be Green.” And, I am sure he is right.

I think it’s much easier to be Red…especially Big and Red!  I am about five times the size of any other grocery cart in my class and I was born with a huge racing motor.  So, I am really different than all of my friends who carry groceries for our customers at Save Mart…but that’s what is so great about being me!

My name is Big Red and my dad, Bob Piccinini, who owns Save Mart Supermarkets, designed me. Dad loves the grocery industry and he has a real “need for speed,” so I guess you can say that he made me what I am today.

I get to go on a lot of fun trips, visiting Save Mart stores and hanging out at NASCAR races and other cool events. And, the best part is that I get to have my picture taken with lots of nice people like you…which is my favorite thing to do!

Anyway, Dad suggested I start blogging so that I could reach out to all of you and let you know how much the whole Save Mart family values you. Especially me (but, don’t tell him I said that!). So now, I will be writing to you each week to let you know what’s going on in my life and what we are doing to make your shopping experience even better at Save Mart.

I will also post pictures of my travels and let you know where I am going next so you can visit me.  I love you guys and I totally want to make as many friends as I can. In fact, I think I am going to start a Facebook page so you can friend me… as long as Dad says it’s okay!
