Metro, a Canadian-based business, introduces a grocery singles night, which allows people kill two birds with one stone. While they shop for food, those who attend will be able to mingle in the aisle to meet new people and possibly even make a romantic connection or two. Food is often said to be the way to a person's heart, after all.
Hosted by media personality and romance expert Jen Kirsch, the grocery singles night capitalizes on the fact that this particular location was named as one of the Top Ten Places in the City to meet singles by a local blogger. A clever marketing tactic as well, t puts Metro in a different light -- one that is fun and social.
People are asked to tie a red ribbon on their baskets to indicate if they are single.
