To the young people of Ellington the Supermarket was many different things. Another home, a place they'd known as long as they can remember. A one-of-a-kind place to work, build friendships and have as much fun as possible without getting caught. The heart of their town, a farming community with more cows than people and the last outpost for Rockwell's America. But this summer Ellington, the Supermarket, and the young people who cared for it the most will grow up. A modern day Capraesque tale about growing into adulthood in small town USA, 'The Supermarket' is a story of laughter, love, old rivalries, coming home for the summer, barely functional cars, small triumphs and tragic loss, late-night lawbreaking, fearing the future, food fights, standing together, and finding your place in the world.

Did You Know?
You don't think we're gonna win this, do you?
We could. All the guys in the 60s who made changes, civil rights, women's rights, stopped the draft, they were guys our age, and they stood up for what they believed in. All we have to do is realize that it's really, truly up to us. We have to be the ones to make them leave our town alone.
Every supporting character's name is followed by a parenthetical note of their department within the Supermarket. Following Tom Schall's credit as "Hobo" is the department tag of "(United Bums Local 501)." See more
