“Market Basket” — ‘Bag or Box’ Option Is Brilliant. Why Hadn’t We Thought Of This Before.

Two of the five boxes of shopping we brought back from ‘Market Basket’ Saturday night. By 3pm Sunday they had already been taken to the Alton dump for recycling. The Town makes some money too.

We were in Portsmouth on Sunday (just to enjoy being there) and as is my wont when I am within 5 miles of either the Concord, Portsmouth or TiltonMarket Basket‘ I had to stop just to see what they had. I said it was to get some dog biscuits but we ended up spending $179 (which is par for the course).

We hadn’t taken our reusable bags because we were only going into get some dog biscuits and possibly some milk. I am standing at the checkout when I see this fairly small green sign: ‘Bag of Box’. Wow. I was overjoyed. That was GREAT. We recycle boxes every week (given the amount of shopping I do on Amazon). This was cool. So much better than plastic and so much easier than lugging reusable bags. Plus I could have packed (albeit it heavy) boxes which minimizes unload time.

So I asked for boxes. I guess it is new. They weren’t too slick about it BUT tried. In the end I went and picked out the boxes that would work for us best. I even packed a couple.

Love it.  Arthur T. Demoulas YOU remain THE MAN. Brilliant. I hope other Supermarkets pick up on it.

Thank YOU, Art. It is no wonder that I love MB and have done so for 30 years.
