In our city, there is a Hispanic grocery chain called Fiesta. If I were to ask: "¿Dónde es la fiesta?"
I may get directed to that store. lol.. Seriously, for whatever reason, the people in my area randomly add " the " to the front of stores.
I need to go to the Krogers.
u_u instead of:
I need to go to Krogers.
I'm not sure it's random. I think "the" tends to get added when the word is not a proper Spanish noun. ¿Dónde está Miguel? ¿Dónde está el Mike? If I recall correctly, one doesn't add "the" before a proper Spanish noun, but I don't know if it's a rule to add "the" before a proper non-Spanish noun.
