Kids are heading to the grocery store but not for your weekly errand.

The Children’s Museum of Acadiana teamed up with Super 1 Foods and unveiled Le Petit Magasin (The Little Store) where kids get to role-play as both store employees and shoppers.

“We are thrilled to welcome Super 1 to the CMA family. A most beloved exhibit for over 22 years, the grocery store has a fresh authentic look and a new feel that radiates community. It’s a natural fit,” said Carol McManus, Executive Director at the Children’s Museum of Acadiana.

To celebrate its opening, there was a ribbon-cutting this morning.

According to a spokesperson for Super 1 Foods, the child-sized grocery store exhibit is highly interactive and tailored for children and their families.

If you weren’t able to make it for the grand opening, the museum is open until 5 p.m. throughout the weekend.
