We can guess where you grew up based on your shopping habits

Your shopping list reveals your roots.

Whether the stores you frequented as a kid are shuttered now or your favorite chains have continued expanding, one thing is for sure: The stores in which you shopped can reveal a lot about where you come from.

Here, we've put together some questions to explore different aspects of your shopping personality, because we think we can tell a New Yorker from a Midwesterner.

  3. Choose an item of clothing from the Sears Wish Book:

Can't really answer some of these questions, sorry. My clothes came mainly from Sears, we did the grocery shopping at Bi-Rite, those candies all suck, and when we went to the mall, we had either Chick-Fil-A or Orange Julius *at* the mall.

Never went to most of these stores, didn't have stores from my region, the catalog doesn't have options from the 80s or 90s. Crappy quiz. Crappy, crappy, crappy.

LOL! Sorry not from California. Most of the stores (grocery particularly) I’ve never seen (Winn-Dixie I heard of because of a movie that contains the name). Dillard’s was the only clothing store I’ve heard of because there was one in Toledo.

Our grocery store A&P,clothing store Dunham's,I felt sad to see Burger Chef. Dummies should have stayed small. If it had it would still be around
