Imagine bringing your groceries home in a wheeled suitcase. That’s what the self-proclaimed “luggage club,” a group of senior citizens in north Minneapolis, use to transport their groceries after their 20-minute bus rides to the nearest grocery store.
They’re buying food staples intended to last two weeks.
