    Scott Morris, Executive Vice President of Merchandising for Southeastern Grocers said, “We are always looking for ways to provide our customers with great value and an enjoyable shopping experience. With the Cosmic Shells, we have an opportunity to create an out-of-this-galaxy shopping experience for our customers and their families that extends beyond the grocery store.

    “Family members of all ages will not only enjoy collecting Cosmic Shells this holiday season but will also engage with Stormtroopers, Tie Fighters and more, all of which will be found in our stores by simply downloading the app.”

Plus, customers can pretend to fly a Millennium Falcon, and more, through the use of Virtual Reality Goggles. Five lucky customers who receive a Golden Cosmic Shell will win an exclusive piece of Star Wars merchandise, such as First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter Helmets and a Darth Vader 40th Anniversary Commemorative Helmet, the most iconic helmet in the Commemorative 40th Anniversary Galactic Empire Helmet Collection in the Star Wars universe.

    On Friday, Nov. 24 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. families are invited to an out-of-this-galaxy event with the opportunity to take photos with real Star Wars Stormtroopers, have their faces painted, enjoy music, delicious samples and win prizes at the following locations:
