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 Tilton ‘Market 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.
