We (Austin and Beccy Craig) are newlyweds dwelling the primary 90 days of our marriage utilizing bitcoin. Our experiences might be featured in an upcoming documentary movie: Life On Bitcoin. http://www.lifeonbitcoin.com

After greater than three weeks of looking and appointments, we discovered a grocery retailer to simply accept our bitcoins. It seems, it was one of many first grocery shops we approached -Lolo’s Contemporary Meals Warehouse in Provo, Utah. http://www.lolosfoods.com/. It simply took appreciable time to get all of it organized.

The associates have been very pleasant, even when a digicam was of their face. They directed me to Mark Ridley, an government with Ridley’s Shops in Idaho (Lolo’s is underneath their company umbrella), with whom I’ve since had an opportunity to talk a pair occasions, and he expressed a variety of help for our mission.

Proper now, we’re on a trial run with LoLo’s, utilizing one thing of a cost card system. The primary journey was restricted to $50 USD price of groceries. We use the cardboard on the grocery story, in order that not one of the clerks want particular coaching on tips on how to settle for bitcoin, and no new {hardware} is important to course of the transaction. It really works with their current system, which I am rapidly studying might be important to adoption. Then on the finish of every month, we straight repay the steadiness utilizing bitcoin.

Lolo’s will not be but prepared to simply accept bitcoin from everybody, though they did specific curiosity. It is a trial run, and Mark mentioned they’d be serious about increasing their acceptance of bitcoin and searching for choices to combine it extra, to allow them to provide it to extra of their prospects. We’ll see.

The added bonus for us is that the cost card will even work at associated shops. Ridley’s is a part of the identical community. They’ve about 2 dozen shops unfold out throughout 4 totally different states! AND they’ve an Ace {Hardware} within the Orem, Utah location, with one other location about 30 minutes away that has a fuel station connected!
