Cheap food - limited time
« on: August 31, 2013, 04:23 PM NHFT »

Anyone familiar with West Lebanon knows that there are two Shaw's supermarkets, on 12A - one just north of I-89 and one just south.  This has generally been seen as fairly ridiculous, and apparently Shaw's finally agreed with that sentiment.

So, the store south of I-89 is closing.  They're selling the remaining food at ridiculously low prices.  Percentages vary, but I just totalled my shopping trip, and it averaged out to a 48% discount.  Some items were discounted as much as 70%.

Shelves were getting sparse, but there was still quite a bit there when I left, this afternoon.  Anyone in the area who has some spare funds and storage space might want to go and see what they can find.

They had announced the New Hampshire store closings about a month ago.  http://windham.patch.com/groups/business-news/p/shaws-closing-6-nh-stores_5170a5a6

Meanwhile, the soap opera that is Market Basket (formerly, Demoulas), continues: http://www.bostonglobe.com/business/2013/08/23/market-basket-board-votes-distribute-million-owners/g7Y0pXNiLRVIYDjESTQfUL/story.html

Well, tell him for me that he should watch it.  It has a really good part about used food.

He says that it would be really funny if Roger Moore choked on a twinkie and went to hell.

I'm just passing stuff along.

And I really don't know if he meant twinky or twinkie.

Well tell him that if there were two of him, we could call them Johnson and Johnson and it would be really funny.

Well in the gay world, a twinky means a cute young man, so...
