This Roadside Attraction
Big John Grocery Clerk, Big John Superstore, 1200 E. 5th St., Metropolis, IL
This Big John Grocery Clerk in Metropolis, Illinois (and all of the rest) stand between 28 and 30 feet tall, making the one in Metropolis actually quite a bit taller than the Superman statue that the town is known for. He wears blue jeans, a red shirt, a white apron, and giant black shoes and carries a grocery bag in each arm heaping with items from his shopping trip.
I could use someone like him around next time I need to shop for groceries!
