Some people get lost in the supermarket, others find love.

A South Florida man who met his girlfriend at the Whole Foods Market in Coral Gables two years ago proposed to her in the store Wednesday.


Vladimir Romannikov popped the question to Monica Dehombre at the same spot where they met: checkout lane No. 2.

Dehombre said "Yes!" after Romannikov took her shopping at the store then got down on one knee near a bed of roses at the front registers.


The two met when Romannikov noticed Dehombre looking at a Kombucha bottle, then started looking at the display himself, even though he had no idea what Kombucha was.

He worked up the courage to ask "Do you always shop organic?" and the two have been together ever since.
