Curt's Groceries & Meats is one of the first businesses Booker DeWitt encounters after after arriving to the floating city. The store is located in New Eden Square, near the Zachary Hale Comstock statue and opposite to Columbia Creamery. The entrance is gated shut, making the business inaccessible at the time. A sign in the window encourages citizen to ask about Curt's Founder's Special and a sandwich board advertisement for the Lewis Brothers' Fireworks can be found right by the main door. In Curt's fenced outdoor seating area, two citizen can be found eating at the parasol shaded patio furniture and discussing the Vox Populi, as well as the origin of the group's name. Bread and Cheese can be found on another table.
Another branch of the store can be found in the Market District of Downtown Emporia. The business is located near Patriot's Pride and is once again gated and closed, due to the Vox Populi uprising. Part of the business' exterior is on fire, with a table, closed sign and Apple barrel set in the blaze.
