The late Latin grossus, meaning large or bulky, gave rise to the word grossarius, the name of someone who sold merchandise in large quantities.
In French the word evolved to grossier, and in English to grocer. Kind of brings it all around to stores like Costco, large, bulky, and in large quantities, doesn’t it? Does that make groceries gross? Hmmm, I’ll stick with the small markets and farmers markets.
