Do celebrities do their own grocery shopping or do most have someone to do that for them? Have you ever seen someone famous at your local super market?

I once saw Greta Garbo buying tampons at Costco. A big, huge jumbo pack of them.
She did not say hello.

When I was 14 years old my Mom pointed out Greta Garbo to me in a local pharmacy checkout on First Avenue.
First time I saw Paul Newman in person was in a Gristedes (super market) on 2nd Ave and 49th. He and Joanne W had an appartment near by.
First time I saw Kate Hepburn in person she was shoveling snow in front of her town house on 49th.
So, uh, yes, celebrities buy their own stuff, at least some of the time.

Well there are celebs and then there are celebs. I can imagine a lot of them shopping at supermarkets or buying toilet paper, going to Home Depot or Costco or whatever.
But there are some I can't imagine doing anything for themselves. They have personal assistants who do it, or housekeepers, or whomever. I don't think it's necessarily a status thing or laziness either.
For example, I find it easy to imagine runnning into an "ordinary guy" like Tom Hanks at the store, but in reality, he's probably one of those has a very competent housekeeper who sees about that stuff.

The stars used to drop in at Owens in Beverly Hills, it was a surprisingly small store. They all had accounts - mostly they would send their maids and house keepers, but they would drop in for stuff as well. My partner's family used to patronize them all the time and I went there a bunch of times. Stars would let their kids buy on account there, you'd see them in their all the time. I don't know if it's still open. They had great hazel-nut and chocolate almond coffee.

Anyway, I've never had any star sightings, but the one that comes to mind is someone posted on Raul Esparza's thread a couple years ago that they saw him buying ready-to-use enemas at Rite Aid or Duane Read, presumably for penetration preparation. That was the conjecture, anyhow.

This happened many years ago and really dates me... I worked at an office on street level across O'Farrell from Macy's. We used to see stars from time to time and they were filming Streets of SF at the time. Anyway, one of my co-workers who worked in the front of the office - we had huge floor to ceiling class windows - said she saw Katherine Hepburn across the street with another woman looking in the windows of Macy's. I rushed across the street and stood alongside her as she talked to the woman she was with about men's clothes in the window. She suddenly turned to me and said, he looks exactly like _____'s size. Would myou mind coming with me and we'll pick some stuff out" something like that. We then went to two sections of the men's department and I tried on clothes for her. She picked out a few things and then we checked out with the clerk, she used her Macy's card and it had her own name on it. To thank me she bought me a sweater combination I liked. It wasn't really expensive and was on sale. She was very interested in the sale items.
I also saw Joan Baez once at Joseph Magnin in the cosmetics department. I watched her for a while, and she said something like "snoopy; aren't we" in a friendly way. She bought a lot of stuff and she was totally on her own. Two years later I met her in a social situation and she remembered me as being that snoopy boy from JM.

About 15 years ago I was walking on the side street of Bloomingdale's in NYC. It was early morning on the weekend, so the streets were pretty empty.

Not a grocery store story, but a number of years ago, I was waiting in front of the Palace Theater for a friend, and I noticed a woman waiting in the "Will Call" line; tallish, short hair, shades, well-dressed. And I tried to figure out if I knew her then I realized: JULIE ANDREWS!
And I thought well she'll draw a crowd if I say something, so I just sort of kept an eye on her as the line moved. No "do you know who I am" or even having someone else wait on line for her...she got to the head of the line, picked up her tickets, and walked off to a waiting car.

*I* find it amusing because, as amply demonstrated on this thread, it implies that most people seem to believe celebrities are modern-day deities who one can't *fathom* doing everyday tasks like grocery shopping, taking their kids to the park, shopping at the mall, or whatever. Most celebrities live quotidian lives 99% of the time, just like us ... or, should I say, "just like US!" There are only a handful of celebrities who are either megarich enough to have "underlings" do the shopping or egotistical enough to think they'll be "mobbed" if they show up somewhere in public (think Mariah Carey on that one).
I'm not naming names, since this is such a stupid topic, but I've truly lost track of the number of celebrities I've seen over the years at Ralphs, Whole Foods, Target, the Grove or the Coffee Bean. Unlike R27, I don't find it difficult in the least to recognize somebody even if they're dressed down and not wearing any makeup.

Seen em all but I live here in LA so it's not that uncommon. Olympia Dukakis at Bristol Farms, sort of an upscale little supermarket, and then again the next day at Blockbuster (when there still was Blockbuster). I also saw Shannon Doherty at that store and Tori Spelling on separate occasions, oh and Reese Witherspoon too. Oh, and Janice Dickinson, who was either drunk or high and just carrying on, talking really loud, and just being obnoxious, not unfriendly--just the opposite, but stupid.
Also saw Tyne Daly at Ralph's supermarket with one of her daughters. Honestly, with those big choppers and messy sweatshirt and horrific bleached blond hair, she looked homeless, but it was her.
And the Countess from Real Housewives at a bar on Sunset Boulevard wearing her one shoulder dress (does she own any other kind) and I said hi, but she was sort of stand offish, but it's because I made a Jill Zarin crack and she wasn't having it. Oh, also met Super Nanny at a bar on Sunset and she was a BLAST--the English girl. She was a lot of fun, SO much younger than they used to make her appear on that show, and she poked me in the ribs when I asked if she left the kids in the car to come in and get a drink.

The West Village was the same. At my gym alone, on any given day: John Slattery, Kiefer Sutherland, Julianne Moore, Nate Berkus, Amy Sedaris, Stanley Tucci.
But my favorite "celeb doing regular things" moments: Diane Von Furstenburg buying a foot high stack of magazines...as I stared nosily at the stack to see what she read, she smiled and said, "I love to read magazines when I travel!"

I saw Imelda Marcos during her trial in 1990 perusing the candy counter at Woolworth's.
I was in a hurry and didn't see what she bought but I quickly checked out her shoes, a black leather pump with a 2 inch stacked heel.

I work in a supermarket in the suburbs of NYC. I've seen a few recognizable, but not that famous actors. I've also seen a New York Yankee.
One of my coworkers claims to have seen Phylicia Rashad in the store.

I saw Jackie Onassis and Caroline in the 70's at Serendipity or Rumplemayer's. Caroline was a fat shit and was shoving a huge ice cream cone in her face, this was before her mother got her to slim down.

I always see pictures of Pam Anderson pushing a trolley out of grocery store without make-up, wearing uggs. She seems to constantly be at the grocery store.
